>>19055723How does it compare to the first three books in the series?
>>19054969I remember vacationing with my family on a little island off of Maine and always reading like two of these books a night, nothing else quite inspired the same sense of adventure and wonder hiding behind the ordinary that Magic Treehouse did, and that book in particular really resonated with the seaside environment I loved as a kid. I don't lament growing up and maturing though, it's all about the state of mind, I still try finding the wonder and openness that I felt back in those days.
>>19055237Any more childhood qt goth kino? I could always use my fix
I originally read Bram Stoker’s Dracula in the fifth grade when my teacher lent it to me because I didn’t have a book for personal reading time. I ended up loving it and it’s what made me become interested in classic literature.
>>19056281Lol dude, I had all of these in first grade, but had only read a few, because I wanted to read them chronologically and was waiting for them to come. One day I impatiently read a newer one, and he made some joke that pissed me off and I started crying and ripped up all his books and said I fucking hate them. I think he called my mom a few months later and asked which was my favorite and I gave some bullshit answer.
>>19056271Did you already read that one?
>>19054623Roald DahlDiary of a Wimpy KidGoosebumps (but they're shit)Bill Peet

>>19054969based and redpilled.I recently found an old one and for some reason I opened up to a random page and got sucked into it and finished it like 30min to an hour later. Think it was the one on the Charles Darwin Boat.

>>19054623Anyone else read this?I'm afraid to read these again because even as a kid I kinda remember them being overly reliant on the premise rather than the repetitive plot. t.Zoomer
>>19054713Gernomio Stilton is basedChet Gecko was another good one. I also remember a book about a dog named Hank who lived on a farm.
>>19054623still the scariest book i've ever read
>>19054623i remember a book from my childhood a long time ago.the stories were a variation of godfather death except the role was taken by two sisters called death and disease.and another story about a wife marrying a devil, who was not satan. potato soup was involved.the storybook feels dutch/hungarian in nature
>>19058206I always loved aussie kids books growing up... Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, pic rel, Diary of a Wombat, even thinking about them now is making me feel like a little kid again
What age constitutes childhood? I was 14 when I became acquainted with the writings of Dostoevsky(tbk, cp and notes from the underground), Tolstoy(anna karenina), Mcarthy(Blood meridian, suttree) etc mostly due to this board's influence.

>>19060043>I was 14 when I became acquainted with the writings of Dostoevsky(tbk, cp and notes from the underground), Tolstoy(anna karenina), Mcarthy(Blood meridian, suttree) etc mostly due to this board's influence.just like every other /lit/fag

as an autistic kid, growing up and reading this series, before and after I was diagnoses I always felt strangely attached to dwight. i understood on a weird level what was happening>do harmless thing>non autistic society freaks outeven if I didn't even know I was autistic, or its never mentioned in the book he is or not.the story across the entire series is great, one overarching plot about a retarded school system mixed in with some almost DFW like vignettes. not pictured herethe book about the kids in idaho forming a resistance against the federal government after a national guard shootingthe book about the kid who was in a bathroom mafia where the series does have a "bad" ending(for him, he gets sent to a camp) but I loved it nonetheless.
Mom got me this book because it has my name in the title. I'm 25 now and I still carry it with me
>>19059827I've read these in my childhood , they still pump this out but whatever little quality it had is long gone
>>19054713That's a deep cut, for meI don't even remember what I read from him
>>19055723imagine the smell
>>19054623Unironically most of thisAlso most of Steinbeck’s shorter books.
>>19060043Look at books posted posted and use you’re common sense and stop being an attention seeker.
>>19054623Why boogers are green
>>19054713I had(ve) all of his main series books + his fantasy world + the stone age version of the books. I really enjoyed all of his books -- giant part of my childhood...

>>19058040Bone is awesome, Never finished as a kid because i am a beaner. So we only went to the states to a library and came back. And never finished but it was pretty cool
>>19061177How'd I score?>>19061659I stopped after Scorpia. I didn't think they made more. You remember the Alex Rider movie they made?
>>19054969I had the first 40 of these, they were my favorite as a 5 year old

>>19054623this book was rad
>>19058090great, i only read plague dogs once, never again, broke me more than chuck broke the buck
>>19060502kino series, gives me some nostalgia seeing it here
really creative and funny series. I have an autograph from the author from when I was ~13, "keep writing anon"
this was my favorite book as a small child, my mum read it to me so much that she can still recite most of the book off by heart
>>19054623this still makes me laugh to this day
Off the top of my head, the books I read as a kid were the Mortal Engines series, Bartimeus trilogy, the Gone series, Lemony snicket, Tunnels series (couldn't finish), GOT (I'm a Zoomer), a lot of Anthony Horowitz' stuff because every school in the UK had it (though it was pretty poor), Edgeworld chronicles, HP, Hunger games, Divergent, those ones where the cats have a society, etc. I think these stuck in my memory because big series could just fill a lot more time. Even when you're young you can read fantasy books like that extremely quickly, and a lot of the smaller ones just end up vanishing. I remember reading one illustrated by the same guy who did edgeworld about a boy who finds out all the ghosts in his graveyard are alive, but I don't know the title, and all sorts of other books and vague plots that just didn't have enough content to make a distinct impression. In this category probably go a lot of comic books, but I'm not sure if they really count, anyway, because it's less 'reading' and more just looking at pictures. I'm fairly sure that the widespread success of books like Captain Underpants are mostly down to the fact that they are books you barely have to read at all. Diary of a Wimpy kid had fewer pictures and wasn't entirely a comic, but can you really say you 'read' it? There are like 5 lines of text on some pages, and the comic art style is by far the most distinctive thing about it.It's a shame, really, because older comics I read at that time like calvin and hobbes were really great and even good as an adult (i.e., you could read them as a kid but they weren't juvenile), and you couldn't find them anywhere, all schools and libraries had were hundreds of these captain underpants or colonel poopoo peepee books.>>19063222you must have been a pretty slow kid to still be reading those at 13
>>19060093Me. What about The Edge Chronicles? Those were be the best
>>19054623Very few of you will remember this book, but those of you who do are about reconnect with some memories you didn’t know you had.
>>19060066Dafuq is this?
>childhood booksFor fiction, I can remember reading Lolita, blood meridian and all of Turgenev.For non fiction, I have read 8 of Plato's dialogues when I was 11.Also, If you never spent your childhood with books on at least on this anon's caliber >>19060043 then you should only be lurking and NOT posting.
