Aw, Wind in the Willows! I've been contemplating putting that on my list as a reread.. You have so many books on your list that I'd love to read, really.. Have fun!

Lots of wonderful classic fantasy in there! I've read all but the last four, so I look forward to hearing what you think of the ones you read--and maybe learning about those unfamiliar ones too!

I've got wonderful and very old hardbound copies of copy of Alice and Oz. Not those modernized versions, but those with the original stories. I've always thought the original versions have always been better than those shortened for light reading. :)

P.S I'm looking for Stardust as well. I hope I find a copy soon!
