1. Favourite book from childhood.
I'm going to post a handful of answers each day, so here goes ...
1. Favourite book from Childhood
My favourite book from Childhood was 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. It's such a fantastic and hilariously grotesque story, it's captivating, and I've always loved it from the time I first read it when I was very young (possibly about seven.) I had two copies of the book, the paperback which has long since met it's demise and a hardback (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory/Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator) combined copy which I still have and - and I'm not ashamed of this - which I sometimes still read!
2. Best Bargain
I once won a lovely book about art history in a raffle at my local art society. I think it was worth about £30, and it was a fascinating book.
3. One with a Blue Cover
Well, this one has a blue-ish cover, but it deserves an honorable mention here because it's one of my favourite books of all time. I will never be without a copy of the Hitch Hikers' Guide to the Galaxy.
