This series got me pretty hooked and I couldn’t wait to cycle to the library every week to pick up the next volume of the Famous Five. I made my way through all of them and I guess nearly everything else that Enid Blyton has written.
George was of course my role model 😉
Maybe not exactly high brow literature but it certainly was important in shaping my love for reading. Next to Enid Blyton it was probably Astrid Lindgren, Erich Kästner, tons of comics, TKKG and Alfred Hitchcocks „Three Investigators“ better known as „Die drei Fragezeichen“.
To be honest I read everything I could lay my hands on. Books were not so easy to come by, so I read whatever I could find. Konsalik and Buddenbrocks, the Volksbrockhaus, Nils Holgersson and Herodotus, etc etc
Which books are guilty of turning you into an obsessed Reader ?
