Me and My Flying Machine
Last summer I discovered an old barn.
It was full of great things.
There were boxes, pieces of wood.
There were even nails and a hammer.
I could build anything I wanted.
I'll build a flying machine, I thought,
and I started building.
I worked all day.

From my preteen years I can only remember some Dr. Suess (Horton Hears a Who, Green Eggs and Ham) and the readers they used to teach us with in school ("see Jane run"). It took me a while to read "real books" (books without pictures with more than one-hundred pages)...I can remember (starting in 6 or 7th grade and into highschool) some of the series/titles:
-The Secret Seven: This was a series of books about a group of kids solving mysteries.
-Encyclopedia Brown: another series of books with boy-genius solving mysteries...the reader was given clues during a short story and a chance to solve the mystery themselves (before finding out how Encyclopedia Brown solved it).
-The Secret Cave: two boys find a cave, adventure ensues. I doubt this was a well-known book but for some reason I remember the title. I explore cave sometimes, maybe that's why I remember it.
-Bill the Galactic Hero: about an inexperieced soldier dealing with a futuristic, space travelling, bureaucratic world. I found this in my high school library. It was the first book I ever read with some adult themes. Probably not a well-known book, but I remember it to be well-written, with "underlying-message" quirkyness (maybe the message was "perception is reality"?)
