What were some books you read in your younger days?

It might take less time to list what I didn't read. But off the top of my head:

Everything by: Roald Dahl, Beverly Cleary, Judy Blume, E. B. White
All of: Oz, Mrs Piggle-Wiggle, Uncle Wiggily
Many books about tricksters (Anansi, Br'er Rabbit, Coyote) and other folklore

Besides anything assigned from school, I typically read MAD and Cracked. Do those count?

LOL. I'll add to that, Iron Man comics and gaming mags.

ugh, from the top of my head these are all i can remember...

elementary

caps for sale, mrs. nelson is missing, fox in socks, alexander and the no good very bad day, sonic x-treme (sonic satam universe novel), various calvin and hobbes collection books

middle and high school

call of the wild, charlie, the outsiders, it's a wonderful life, and more calvin and hobbes books.

i had my fair share of comic books too, some of which were ren & stimpy and my stepdad had a few vintage MAD magazines. only one that i can remember though was a double cover issue that had an elephant with a cork up its butt, and on the other cover it explodes from a fart

We did need to read a few books in school. One I remember that sticks out to me is The Lottery. That was just... disturbing to me at that age.
