    1. I only placed my favorites on the list and even then I was lacking. I forgot to add Jeanne Birdsall author of the Penderwicks. And that is why I opened up the comments to add your personal favorites to mine. But I also do agree that Mark Twain is an amazing author. I have never read Wila Cather, though My Antonia is on my list to read. Thanks again. (If it means that much to you, when I read My Antonia, I’ll write a book review) 🙂


  1. I still have my “Wizard of Oz” picture book that my mom gave me when I was little. And of course I’ve seen the movie countless times. But I realized I’ve never actually read the book. It’s on my nightstand now! Thanks for the reminder that I should give it a read! I’m enjoying all your lists. (I’m a list kind of person.) 😊
