When I was growing up, I was always reading out of my age group. I was reading at high school and college level when I was in elementary. And once I discovered the adult section of the library, I pretty much read whatever I wanted no matter what age group it was meant for. Now that I'm an adult, I stick more to "age appropriate" literature. I'm not much into the teenage angst of young adult literature--but I have read some recently and have also read a few children's books for a reading challenge here and there.
And one side note: I did enjoy reading children's books with my son when he was younger. I really loved discovering Tin Tin, Waldo, and Captain Pugwash with him.
Well...Looky what just showed up in my draft file....My missing post. Now if the missing comments would show up as well.
