wrinkle-time-lengleI liked this tongue-in-cheek piece from Flavorwire about what your favorite book in childhood might mean about you now. Of course ‘childhood’ covers a pretty big chunk of time – my favorite at age five (Am I a Bunny? by Ida DeLage), was much different than at age nine (A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle) than at age 13 (The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton). But it made me laugh:

Animal Farm by George Orwell
You’re probably a genius by now. Or a politician. Definitely not both.

The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
You’re a creative gastronomist with a flexible policy on slave labor.

Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
There are eighteen different kinds of tea in your kitchen, and plenty of herbs.
