Just another GR refugee. Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.
The Maida books, by Inez Haynes Irwin. My very favorite bedtime books growing up. A group of children from a working class neighborhood in Boston make a new friend - Maida, a girl with a severe limp. Who turns out to be the daughter of a millionaire. Great fun. I had my mother's copies; they were out-of-print when I was a child in the 1970s. (Still are, I think.)
(What was the very best, though, was my parents or grandparents telling me a bedtime story. I got tales of the rural South from the 1880s through the 1950s, of New York City in the 1920s, growing up in the 1940s, and so forth. Wonderful, wonderful stories.)
