Janet and John reading books?

My daughter is reading Superdog

I used to love the Famous Five series.

Re: What ever happened to......

Hmmm, as a child I used to love The Three Investigators, closely followed by Asterisk and Tin-Tin books

Then I moved onto Dick Francis and Wilbur Smith novels - then Tom Clancy........

I can now admit at the age of 33 I probably haven't read a novel in over 10 years

Re: What ever happened to......

I used to like the Adrian Mole diaries.

Apparently a film is being made of them.... hopefully using Leicester and having a Leicester accent as he was from Leicester

Ah yes, I read the books and watched the TV series - Gian Sammarco, iirc, who played Adrian, was a local lad round these parts

Re: What ever happened to......

I posted to this thread just as the forum died, looks like it's gone walkies

Like all good 20-somethings I started out on Janet and John, then moved onto Famous Five, Malory Towers, Chalet School, Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys and Sweet Valley High.

Now I mostly read crime and horror, I have a shockingly large paperback collection

Re: What ever happened to......

Janet & John & any Enid Blyton books came late in the day for me as a boy. Having 7 older brothers I was brought up on suspect magazines under their mattresses. Didn't they realise that the one in the bottom bunk could always see the reading material of the one on top.

How did I know it wasnt going to take long for someone to bring it down to books you dont really have to read, rather look at the pics

Then again, spose there are some stories in them Not that i've ever seen or would know
