    I loved the Childcraft books!!! I remember when my mum first got them I used to run off to my room with them for hours (particularly the first one). When I go to visit I still pick up that book and remember how I’d curl up on my bed and enjoy those stories.

    Funnily enough, I asked myself a similar question the other day (having been gifted a kindle for Christmas) and decided that the printed book will always, always come out on top for the sheer experience of holding the book in your hand. ebooks (for me at least) are going to become the added extra for a quick, easy (and cheap fix) when I need something new from an indie writer.

      Dear Ilandra, So very nice of you to post a comment. I know I have many readers, but few stop to tell me what memory my post jogged in them. I just gave my granddaughter an old illustrated Peter Pan because we just saw the show with Cathy Rigby at Madison Square Garden. She treasured it and tears came to my eyes when I read the inscription–“For my dear daughter, Merry Xmas, the father’s name and then Christman, 1936.”

    I had stacks and stacks of Golden Books and loving memories of my mother reading to me before I could read them on my own. I remember hiding under my blanket with a flashlight so I could just finish the last chapter in my Nancy Drew book. It’s hard to create memories with a kindle.
