What are your top ten favorite books?


  1. See! Now I'm looking at your list and wondering how in the world I forgot A Tree Grows in Brooklyn! This is why my list changes from day to day, lol.

  2. Thank you Jennifer for leaving a comment. Recently I changed up my top 10 as I'd just read a few new classics. I still love David Copperfield and Oliver Twist the best. Notice I place Jane Eyre before Pride and Prejudice, I'm sure that got a few boos!

  3. I would have to add Tale of Two Cities and Gone With the Wind!

  4. Melissa I've not read either of those books.......yet!
