My tag reading list

This is my all time favourite, when I  was young I dreamt of going to a school like this, but would really have hated being away from home.
                                        I always wanted to be a Ballerina sadly my legs didn't grow long enough but my daughter has realised my dream and has the legs :)
I loved The Bunty comic.
I could always be found on Boxing Day in my room with The Bunty Annual and a selection box, not much has changed really :)
                                                    Once my children arrived it was a good excuse to relive all these books
                                              I enjoyed reading all about Flopsy Mopsy and Cotton Tail and called one of my ducks Jemmima not very original I know.
                                         My taste in literature has changed a lot over the years and I'm more willing to try anything that catches my eye.
                                        My favourites which I re read every few years are these,
I have a passion for social history.

                                                I have a copy of the film Hobsons Choice  staring John Mills it never fails to make me laugh.

                              This book I found in a charity shop it was rrp at £17:99 I paid 55p it was brand new. I like a challange and this  is a huge book to get through,  it's set in Victorian times which is why I bought it, boy did it make me blush a few times, I'm no prude but this is a bit racy to say the least, you have been warned :) that said it's compulsive reading.
                                               At the moment I'm reading this which I have borrowed from my favourite place the library.

                            Thats all for now  Happy reading cate x

I soooo wanted to be a boarder at Enid Blyton's schools and devoured the books when I was much younger. I also had Bunty comic then progressed to Jackie! Fond memories.

Oh Hobson's Choice! I love it!
I played the part of 'Vicky' once, the same part Prunella Scales played in the film...
'Surely I'm not BUMPTIOUS Father!' was my favourite line!
Hee hee. xxx

Hi Cate, I do like vintage childrens books but rarely read them. I hated reading as a child especially the books that you had to read at school..yuck.

I do read , I just prefer horrors or thrillers. Its funny because before I saw this post I had added a picture of my current read, its pretty awesome if you like that type of thing :)

Hope you are well, Tamara

Great post - I was a big Enid Blyton fan too and I collect the Dean series of Blyton books for my little girl, I hope she'll enjoy reading them too.

I feel ashamed for admiting that I haven`t read a book for a very long long time!
Maybe its about time to change that!Lol
