My grandfather used to tell me a story about The Man In The Pipe. It was about when he emigrated to America and they found a stowaway who was stuck hiding in one of the pipes on the ship. You gotta hear it in broken English to get the humor.

#16 | 1283 days ago

As a 2-4 year old I memorized this book so well that somewhere my parents have a cassette recording of me reciting it.



The few books that I was not forced to read as a youth were of this series (oh, and I had plenty of Dr Seuss too)

I could hardly wait to start first grade and get a book or books to bring home each night.  Sad to say they insisted i take this pack of cards home each night and learn my a b c's  before i could have a book but boy was i happy about three months later when i got the book.  See Dick run.  See Jane run.  See Spot run.    Was i one proud child or not?    You betcha, i was.

It was a nursery rhyme dad used to tell,
Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down
And got his ass kicked
Cause he didn`t do his f**king chores!

As a really small child, I loved most of the Dr. Seuss books (especially "Green Eggs and Ham" and "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish" )
I read The Secret of Nimh like 18 times.  
I also liked the Goosebumps books.

Where the Wild Things Are.  I can still recite it from memory...
The night Max wore his wolf suit and made mischief of one kind and another, His mother called him "wild thing"....

I'll just leave it at that before everyone starts telling me to get a life.

I loved Grimm's tales as well (still do) and I remember how I enjoyed reading Iliad and Odissey for the first time, Greek mythology was a must for me (my mom still have some of those books and maybe one of these days they'll dissapear from her shelf) I used to read a lot more as a child than today, those were good times (sighs)  my mom had to call me several times because I was always on a couch reading,as soon as I finished what she asked me to do, I got back to my place and kept reading. I have a pile of books waiting for me right now

There are so many that I liked that it brings back memories just thinking about them......I used to read a lot of the children / teen compilations books with the classics, the Illiad and the Odyssey are two of the all-time greats in classic literature, and I even loved the series of books entitled "The Great Brain", about a kid that was too smart for his own good, greedy to boot, and all of the trouble he used to get into during his money making ventures which too oft times backfired on him. 

There are so many great memories.....I know I already said that....I'm just reflecting.....  One thing is for sure, I need to take some time away from my other reading and just read a book for the shear enjoyment of reading and envisioning the story in my head, versus only my research (which I enjoy) attributed to it's solely purposeful meaning, or movies that are missing a great amount of the story because of time/cost restrictions.   Hmmmmm....... my wife brought home a number of paperbacks one of her co-workers thought I'd enjoy--perhaps it's time to see if anything catches my eye....

You are soooo right! I feel exactly the same way,  from time to time we need to go back to that nice feeling, recreating wonderful worlds in our minds, trying to figure out what's next, sometimes I couln't wait and cheated and took a pick on some pages after the one I was reading, I was awake at night and said, ok, ten pages more, when I got there I said, well, just until I finish this chapter, and so on, that's a sign you are enjoying your reading and that's a wonderful thing.
