Growing up in the 1980s was idyllic in many ways. Sure, we first heard the term global warming, and the news wasn't always good, but as kids, we still rode our bikes, played with our original Nintendo Entertainment Systems and listened to our Walkman tapes. We loved our sticker books (especially scratch n' sniff), Pee-Wee's Playhouse and Fruit Roll-Ups, and were dying to be on the Ghostbusters team. But still we found time to read. And in childhood, the stories we explored seemed more full of adventure and wonder than could be possible. We would fight our drooping eyelids, reading late into the night by the light of a flashlight, to see what happened next.
If you grew up in the 1980s, these books will be some you remember.
