12. I was hooked on Weekly Reader books & Scholastic books
that were available through my grade school. It was one of the few times that I could get money from my folks without their complaint, plus I got my older brother's when he outgrew them.

That was 40-some years ago, and I can still remember some of the titles: Follow My Leader, Mystery in Old Quebec, No Children No Pets, Just Plain Maggie...

I'm sorry to see a school dump a great offering for children over one or two ignorant complaints.
