I don't remember when I first read Diana Wynne Jones but I have been a huge fan for decades - probably 3 or 4. My favorite of her books is "The Lives of Christopher Chant". I have read it multiple times. I lost count after 18.

My first experience with DWJ was discovering "Witch Week". Soon after that, I read "Homeward Bounders" and just this past week, I dashed through "Earwig and the Witch".

There may be a DWJ book out there that I haven't read. I WILL find it and read it. I just wish there could be more. We lost a huge talent when Diana died last year.
