I read a lot of crap as an adolescent. I read The Babysitter's Club and several short novels that were parts of series I never got into - Dear Diary and Lost Girls and The Truth about Taffy Sinclair. Utter crap.
But I also read some good stuff too. Roll of Thunder Hear my Cry. The Great Gilly Hopkins. Where The Red Fern Grows. A Wrinkle in Time.
Sometimes I work in the children's department of a bookstore and it really takes me back. I try to think back to some big kid/young adult books I enjoyed, when I'm helping parents and grandparents pick out books.
I never read Bridge to Tarabithia or The Indian in the Cupboard. Maybe I should start reading some kids books I never read as a child. I'd finish them in a snap and then I'd feel good about how many books I'm plowing through!
