Well, I wouldn't say there are any books I obsess over, though there are a few books that I will always make sure are part of my collection and they are "Charlie & the Chocolate Factory" "James & the giant Peach" "Where the Sidewalk Ends" "The Giving Tree," ALL Judy Blume books (excpet for the more recent ones, which I never read) and a wonderful book for more young adult readers called "The Westing Game."

A couple of years ago I was sort of obsessed with scouring used book stores to find copies of Judy Blume books. While a new copy isn't that expensive, the old copies tend to have the original covers which are much better than the reprinted copies.

A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett I collect different editions of it to this day, even all the movie adaptations. I love every word of it. Sara Crewe was my childhood heroine and, if I ever have one, I will name my daughter Sara. How's that for "obsessed"?
