Children's books addendum

I can't believe I forgot to mention how much I loved mystery books when I was a kid! The Three Investigators series rocked! Did anyone else read these? The main character was Jupiter Jones, and he and his friends solved mysteries. Their headquarters was disguised by a big junkpile, and I thought that was the coolest thing ever. I so wanted a clubhouse like that of my own. My best friend and I even decided we were amateur detectives, and we were always on the lookout for mysteries to solve, much to the amusement of my grandfather, who was a local judge.

And, even though I read voraciously for many years prior to discovering Anne of Green Gables, I think that was the first book I truly fell in love with.
