And I find that there are some extremely well written, moving stories in the young adult genre.
    I loved reading kids books when my kids were growing up. I highly recommend the Little House series of 9 books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I just read them for the first time last fall at the age of 59 and enjoyed them immensely. And that now with the "kids" being 23 & 26!

    I agree. I've read all the Harry Potter books and recall reading A Wrinkle in Time when I was in college and working during summers in an elementary school - and discovered it in the school library, so would read it during lunch breaks. I'm just a sucker for a good story, I guess...

    I'm also looking forward to the Disney film treatment of this classic with Oprah due out next spring!

    Does Oprah count as a guilty pleasure?

    We have been binge-watching Lucifer. There is no doubt about the "guilty pleasure" aspect.

    I discovered the Susan Cooper "Dark is Rising" series when I was an adult and still love it.
