Oh dear! I have read The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood, and possibly James and the Giant Peach (though I can’t remember the story). I am currently in the middle of Vanity Fair. Happy reading in 2014!
Good for you, Faith. I read James and the Giant Peach, and Holes (which was made into a movie). I did finally finish reading The Catcher in the Rye, from the first week’s list.
What a great list. I have read 10 on this list. Holes is excellent as is A Fine Balance (one f the best books ever), O Pioneers!, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, and The Razor’s Edge I want to read Under the Net — by Iris Murdoch and Waverley — by Walter Scott
I think I would like to see your book shelf, Darlene. 🙂
Oh-oh, only 2 for me. Time to get reading!!
Same for me, Sue!
I haven’t read 521 and 535 (but have 535). I HAVE read 525, 526, and I am reading 564. So, I have read about 1/2 of the kid’s books. 🙂
That’s great, Erik!
