  3. Junie B. Jones was an awesome series!

    All of these lists are bringing on a serious bout of nostalgia. I want to go back and read all of these books!

  4. Yay Nancy Drew and Boxcar Children! I really want to go back and read The Giving Tree again. It's been way too long. Here's my list

  5. Wow - I don't think I ever read any of these, save for a single Nancy Drew book.
    My list is here

  6. I loved Where the Wild Things Are! But I think that's the only one on your list that I have read. Crazy, huh? :)

  12. I just added two of your books to my must-read list. I love Sharon Creech, and it's becoming increasingly obvious I have to read The Boxcar Children. So many have included it on their list and I've never read them!
