Welcome to the challenge! I keep seeing Anne of Green Gables on lists and it's making me really want to reread it soon--wonder what I can give up so I have time? I'd not heard of #3 or #7 on your list--if you get to those, I'm very curious to hear about them. (The best part of these events.) Happy reading!

Ooh! I should add Anne of Greene Gables to my list, too. So glad to hear that you loved Elizabeth Nesbit (on my post).

What a great idea! I think I'll join in too! I'll have to do some digging to find books that are old enough. I wonder if "Ballet Shoes" is old enough. Hmm.
