Yup, today my twin sister and I (along with Eddie Vedder, former lead singer of Pearl Jam) turn 50.

It makes me giggle to say I’m 50 because I feel as though I am lying. My body might be 50, by my mind and soul are not.

As a kid, Christmas birthdays are hard because you fear your special day will get lost in the holiday shuffle. At 50, you sort of hope it will.

Here, are some of my favorite books that turned 50 this year:

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein

Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh

Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang  by Ian Fleming

Whistle for Willie by Ezra jack Keat

Ribsy by Beverly Cleary

The Pushcart War  by Jean Merrill

Rascal  by Sterling North

The Book of Three  by Lloyd Alexander

Well, it looks as though I am in good company! Have a wonderful day and a wonderful holiday season!
