Q is for Questions

Questions, questions everywhere, but no answers to be found!

OK, so that last part isn't always true; quite often questions can be answered easily. But it sounded good.

Anyway, I ask a lot of questions, and personally think asking questions should be encouraged. After all, if you don't ask questions, you'll never learn the answers, will you?

So, just because I love questions - and because it just popped in to my head - I'm going to ask you one of those random questions I sometimes ask.

Did you read as a child? If so, do you remember what your favourite book was? If yes, what was it?

I didn't read much as a child but I remember reading Greek Mythology as a kid and thinking it was interesting.

As long as I can remember, I've loved to read. When I was really little, I don't know what I read, but it was probably Dr. Seuss, lol. Beyond that, around 10 or 11 my favorite books were the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys series. I couldn't read them fast enough it seemed.

I've been an avid reader since I learned to read in kindergarten. I adored "The Secret Garden" and "A Little Princess" - still do, actually.

I always think it is great that one is inquisitive and asks a lot of questions. I always told my kids there is not ever a silly or a bad question if they were wondering about something, better to ask it and get a good honest answer.

I loved to read as a child; still love to read. My favorite book was A Tree Grows in Brooklyn followed by To Kill a Mockingbird :)

betty

I used to read quite a bit, but I was an outdoors kid who wasn't inside much, even as a teen, so I probably didn't read as much as some kids did. I do remember getting very excited whenever the books would arrive that were ordered through the Scholastic Book Club each month. That was fun. I still have some of those old paperback books, too. :) I don't remember having a favorite book.

We didn't have many children's books in our house and my mom never read to us, that I remember. But I read anything I could find. We did have the old fairy tales and original Mother Goose--pretty creepy, actually. I read magazines, encyclopedia, whatever books my mom had around. But I do remember my mom reading me Shakespeare by stanzas and then quizzing me as to what I thought it meant when I was around 7 years old. I can't remember which plays though now.

I was always told that I asked too many questions as a child!! But when you're young, you have so much to learn!!! Also asking questions means I'm interested...not questionING, just asking for information. People can really take it the wrong way!!!

I've always, always, always loved to read and my children also love to read. I remember reading Paddington Bear books, and then Little House on the Praire books, and later Judy Blume books. My nose was always stuck in something, lol! Still is!!!

Glad to see so many book lovers! :)

Deanna:
You and me both; A Little Princess especially!

I'm sorry I'v not been around the blogs lately. I have always loved reading and my all time favorite book was Heidi. When mom and dad passed away my sister and I fought over who would get the book. Then I realized just how silly that was and let her have it. I'll always be glad I did. I also loved Little Women. Great question!

Great choice! :)

I love questions, much more than I do providing answers. Questions can teach you a lot about a person. :)

To answer yours(!), I read voraciously as a child. My favorite books growing up were The Giver and this book of short stories that my mom gave me -- I don't even remember the title, but I remember lying belly-down on the sunlit carpet and reading for hours. Sigh. :)

So many books, so little time...

I've had a lot of questions in my head lately, so I can relate!

Yes I did read a lot. I loved Little Women, all the Misty of Chincoteague books and mysteries -- Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden. (I still love mysteries!)

I love questions too; and the ones with no easy answer are the best! :)

I agree; so many books, so little time! I've filled in information for almost 200 books on Goodreads, and those are just the ones I remember reading (and I know of a few more I just haven't had time to do). OMG! Imagine if I could remember every book... There'd be thousands! ;)

Jeanie:
Good choice; I enjoy a good mystery myself! Well, actually, I enjoy a good book in general, but still...
