The Culprits

Brian posts a writing prompt each week and the most current one asks what book or other piece of art influenced us as kids.



I especially remember reading these two series of books. I'd go to the library (By myself! I was maybe in 5th grade.) and just browse around looking for new additions.




I'm not sure, now, why I loved them so much. Maybe it was the perfectness of their lives, or the adventures, but these are the kids who got me into reading.

I liked the Hardy Boys as well, anything with strong and capable boys.

Thanks for joining in the prompt.

I had the Bobbsey Twins series! I remember being wrapped in them! I also had the Norah of Billabong series, the Katy books and Heidi. But strangely, today, I can't remember one single storyline from the Bobbseys or Billabong series, but know still almost every detail of Heidi's adventures on her Swiss mountain! Perhaps it is because I live on a mountain now!

I didn't do that much reading when I was a kid. Only in adulthood did I see how much I missed out on.
