    I'm taking a huge risk in assuming most of you borderline-illiterate mongoloids ever read books voluntarily, but whatever.

    Having grown up in the country where we had 3 channels at most if the weather cooperated, I read a shit-ton of books. Was even a frequent visitor to the Bookmobile!

    Some of the books I remember being good reads:

    The Pigman
    To Kill A Mockingbird
    The Kid In The Red Jacket
    The Bully Of Barkham Street
    A Semester In The Life Of A Garbage Bag
    Isabelle The Itch
    Harriet The Spy

    Anything by Beverly Cleary
    Hardy Boys books
    There was a series of books that revolved around a character named "Soup", those were pretty good.

    What about you guys?

    I do believe the only comics aimed at kids were of the Harvey Comics and Archie Comics variety.

    The Great Brain sounds familiar, and Encyclopedia Brown was fucking awesome! "25 cents a day, plus expenses"

    I loved Judy Blume
    "Are you there God it's me Margaret."
    "Blubber"
    "Then Again, Maybe I Won't"
    "Forever."

    I also remember, "Flowers in the Attic," and anything by VC Andrews as being hot reading material.

    Stephen King
    "Salems Lot."
    "The Long Walk."

    The Long Walk is still one of my favorite books

    I may have to go on an Amazon spree and buy these books to read again. I'm sure they'd make excellent toilet reads.
