    How could I forget my childhood favorite-The Velveteen Rabbit! You remember. That's the one about the stuffed rabbit that, "When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY love you, then you become REAL."
    What a great story!

    Everyone here is SO well read.
    I like all the classic sci-fi stuff from H.G.Welles and Jules Verne pus modern(ish) stuff by Issac Asimov.
    I do like the 'classic english novels' as well though like "The Woman In White" and "Pride & Prejudice" (but shhh...don't tell my wife because I always moan when 'period dramas' are on TV)
