    I never really was a big reader, but there was really no way around having to read them if you went to school:D
    Some of my favorites were..

    Any of the Choose Your Own Adventure books...

    I got this Time Life book series for a birthday present one year. I would always look forward to them coming every month.

    I loved when Book Fairs came to school. My parents would give me a crisp 20 so I could buy a few books.

    I would rather spend it on some cookies, chips, sodas and buy the dollar books. Hehe, they got bamboozled.

    I'm kidding, but I did love this book fairs and always look for a cool looking cover that got my interest.

    Didn’t mommy and daddy teach you not to judge a book by its cover, son.

    There was another series of choose your own adventure type books I remember reading.

    They were hardcover, purple, and I remember one has a dinosaur on the cover. There were maybe ten or so in the series.

    @Steve-French or anyone else know what I'm talking about?
