30 Day Book Challenge: Day 28

Last year I found this book challenge (since then I have seen many variations of it, but I like this one best!), and have been intrigued about how I would answer the questions posed. Feel free to comment with your own answer or post the challenge to your own blog.

First favorite book or series obsession

OK, so when I read these books in the early 80s...there were only, um...4. Frankly, I didn't know there was a 5th book until, I have never read it. I don't really understand how this could be part of two series, but I digress.

The Time Quartet was the first series of books I was totally obsessed about and it's first book A Wrinkle in Time was the first book I read more than once. There for awhile I read it every year.

I love, love, love, love this series and all I have to do to be propelled to a simpler time is open up the pages of any one of these books. I can remember sitting on the floor of my bedroom, radio on, contemplating the fifth dimension and thinking about what I would do if I had a brother like Charles Wallace.

My husband and I watched the movie sometime last summer. It didn't really hold as much magic as the book.
