Last week, I shared with you a new site that I just love called Words Move Me: Connecting readers around the literary moments they love. Make sure you visit this site and register so you can share some of your favorite literary moments with other book lovers!
As part of promoting this site, Sony gave me the opportunity to giveaway a Sony Reader Pocket Edition (valued at $199.99) to one very lucky Booking Mama reader. To enter, I asked for you to leave a comment telling me about a book you read when you were growing up that has stayed with you and why it was memorable. My plan was to select the five "best" answers and then randomly select the grand prize winner. Little did I know how incredibly difficult it would be to pick just five comments.
I was blown away by all of your responses, and I could definitely relate to many of your feelings. The responses were just amazing -- some made me laugh and some even made me cry. Many of your comments brought back wonderful memories about books that I read and loved as a child. Quite a few of your comments made me write down books that I definitely need to read and even re-read. I have to say that narrowing the list down to five was next to impossible for me.
So without further ado, here they are:
