Does anyone have a book that has stuck with them long after they read it? Or a favourite book from childhood?

I was a huge Stephen King fan as a teen, so I remember those the best.

I Am Legend haunted me. I mean, what if we actually did get replaced by zombies?

Ultimately, the most memorable book I've ever read was "The Phantom Tollbooth" by Norton Juster, which indicated early on that I'd be an English teacher.
I still quote from it and I read it about 50 years ago. :seeingstars:

I still love Carbonel by Barbara Sleigh and I think I must have been about 7 or 8 the first time I read it.

Graham Masterson's Walkers stayed with me for an entirely different reason - it scared the :censored: out of me! Kept waiting for the inmates to come and get me lol

"Mister God, this is Anna" is an amazing book. I think it is the most heartwarming book I ever read.

Phew.. When I was younger and still had the time I used to read 24/7.. Also being a HUGE Stephen King fan, I've read all his books, but on the top of the list is [ofcourse] "IT", after reading the book the movie also became my favorite, JB being in it was/is a bonus :D ;)

As for "other" books, there was this Dutch book called "mail on Sunday", about a girl who gets a misterious note on a Sunday and she goed and try to figure out where it came from and what it means.. Great book!
