I read this back when I was in the seventh grade. I was in an "advanced" reading class and we actually got to choose whatever we wanted to read, though there was a list of recommended books which gave us bonus crefit. A Wrinkle in Time was on that list and I read it and loved it. I never knew that there were sequels written to it, and I'd love to win this 50th anniversary edition and kick off a read of all them together.

Thanks for the chance!

Been looking to add this to my library, especially as my husband was never exposed to L'Engle but was intrigued by the bits of the story he ran across recently.

I've never been a huge fan, but this (plus the "best read out loud post") would be the motivation to read it to the kids to llet them decide for themselves (plus the missus would be willing to alternate with me, unlike The Hobbit).

I had the pleasure of meeting Madeleine L'Engle years ago at a SF WorldCon, but I'm embarassed to admit I've never read her novel A Wrinkle In Time. Definitely time to make time to read the book... I just hope that being an older reader doesn't lessen the impact & love for the story, that (based on the comments posted here) reading it as a kid seems to hold.

I first read A Wrinkle in Time in second grade. I have read it every year since then, and I still am not tired of it. L'Engle's works had a dramatic effect on my reading taste. Is it strange that I loved the books about the Murrays as much as I loved the Sweet Valley Twins? Over time, my tastes developed into pure sci-fi and fantasy. I doubt if I would be reading David Weber right now if it weren't for the works of L'Engle and McCaffery to draw me in...
Lydia Ondrusek
180. Meagan Glaccum
So we just comment to enter??

Madeleing L'Engle is one of my favorite authors. Not only did she write incredible books for young adults, she also wrote beautiful and insightful books for adults.

It would be an honor to add this graphic novel to my collection (not only my collection of graphic novels, but my Madeleine L'Engle collection).

Thank you for the contest! :-)
