Back To School Book Blogger Challenge: Day 3


Day 3: Share you most memorable school memory.

I have many! School was actually always a really great time for me. I wasn't really ever one to not like school. I liked seeing my friends, learning new things, participating in all the activities. High school is filled with "memorable memories" for me, but I think I will throw it way back to elementary school where my love for reading really began to bloom.

I was always the "advanced" reader: reading way above my grade level. I could also fly through books like nothing else. We had this reading program at my school where we could read the book, take test on it, get a certain number of points, and then trade our points for prizes. One year my best friend (and we are STILL best friends sixteen years later!) and I where in the top first and second places for points for our grade and we got to leave school and go to an Olive Garden lunch with our principal and teacher. We thought we were so cool!

Here are some of my favorite books I read throughout 1st- 5th grade that helped me get those points. These are also part of my most memorable memories.

-The Little House series
-The Nancy Drew books
-Sweet Valley series
-This one about a magic attic or something, but I can't remember the name
-All the "horse" books
-Hank the Cowdog series (loved this one!)
-Where the Red Fern Grows
-And so many more!

  1. I was a Trixie Belden fan as a kid. The author of Nancy Drew was from Iowa! I just learned that recently when her estate donated a bunch of stuff to the University of Iowa.
