I was a voracious reader in grade school. Still am. After I went through the "mystery" section, in the school library, my PTA advisor suggested I read sports books. Her kids were captains on the sports teams. I said I liked mysteries and a new box just came in. She convinced my teacher that I needed to diversify my reading and I read hockey and baseball books for the rest of the year. I always eyed the new mystery box while learning about Babe Ruth.
Flash to today. With Kindle, I'm able to read lots of previously unavailable very old, out of print mystery books. Why, as an adult would I want to? They comfort me.
With all the shill going on today, they comfort me, and I want to share some stories with my boys. Here's the thing, I'll never know what was in the box in 1972--there were new and old books in there. But, I can do this. Through the miracle of Kindle and the forum, I can ask you to suggest a mystery book you liked. I especially like the ones involving camping and cabins, as self-sufficiency used to be a big part of childrens' books, and I want my son to read some before we camp this summer.
By no means is that a limit, though. What were your favorite series books, or individual books as a child?
What were your favorite camping books? I'd really like to know.
