I love reading, I love books, I can't throw any of them away!
My early favourites were anything from Enid Blyton.....sadly these are the only two that I have left......(I've moved house a lot in my life)....
Looking at the handwriting, I'm guessing that this might have been around grade 5 or grade 6!
My high school favourite was definitely 'To Kill a Mockingbird'. This was an english text maybe in year 8 or year 9 and this is my old original copy.
My next favourite is 'Cloudstreet'. This was a gift from one of my cousins when I was in hospital a few years ago. It's a sentimental favourite because of the lovely inscription....
But...this is my all time favourite!
The inscription in this book is from when we lived in a little town in Western Victoria in 1979 (when I was in grade prep).
This book was published by the Australia Council as part of the International Year of the Child in 1979. It was made for kids so that they could look back on how things change. More than 10,000 Australian children submitted their information and a broad selection were used in the final published book. I pulled it out of the bookcase just a few months ago for a re-read and a chuckle.
I've included some photos of the inside so that everyone can have a read!
