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.
