a Friday quiz from LJ

1. What book or books were special to you in your childhood?

The first book I recall is PAT THE BUNNY. However, the books that I devoured were (hanging head in shame now) CHERRY AMES. I was sure I was going to be a nurse one day.

2. What was particularly special or memorable about those books?

As a kid I would have said it was because Cherry was such a noble and caring person, one I wanted to be like. As an adult, I know it had a lot to do with sheer escapism and some other mix-in emotions from my wonderfully dysfunctional childhood. I was playing nurse to my mother. Long story, not for LJ.

3. Have you re-read any of them as an adult?

Sadly, no

4. If so, were the books as good as you remembered them?

I suspect I will be terribly disappointed as I have been when I read the Nancy Drew books as a grown up.

5. What do you think about movies being made out of children's classics (like the Chronicles of Narnia, Lord of The Rings, etc.)?

I thought LOTR, at least the first one, was fairly good. Did not see the other two though I read the books again. Ditto Narnia. I do like the movie adaptations even when they are way off.
