  1. All of the Richard Scarry books. When I was a kid I used to stare at the pictures and make up my own stories about the characters.

    I guess that should have been a clue that I was meant to be a writer.

  2. I read Ender's Game about once every year or two. I was awestruck by this book when I was in middle school, and re-reading it helps me reclaim that feeling!

  3. Mine just live on my bookshelf until I read them again :). I did write fanfiction and role play after falling in love with the world and characters of certain books and TV shows.

  8. Mine is Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows, of course. I'm such a Ravenclaw. I wrote about it back when I did my HP reread last summer, so here's that link. Blanket warning for anyone who's never read HP before- there be spoilers. http://jeskuh.blogspot.com/2011/07/reread-2011-harry-potter-and-deathly.html

  9. Anything I've ever checked out of the public library in person over a summer. I just touch the book or think about it and I can tell you when I took it out and what the day was like in the library and where it was located -- the Molly Moon books in particular!
