1. I loved Lois Lenski and Marguerite Henry as a kid! Trying to get my son interested in them, as I think he would love Lenski’s books in particular — he loves “slice of life” stories that just have ordinary people doing stuff. I still love them now, but in a different way. The Anne books are on my list of favorites too — how cool that you also love Windy Poplars! That has been one of my faves for ever so long, and very few people seem to share that love. Hmm.

    Thanks for the shout-out for the Jane Eyre read-along! That was so much fun. I’m starting to really look forward to the one for The Great Gatsby I’ll be leading in June. I was worried that I would be burned out on discussing books in depth after teaching my niece 9th grade lit all year, but happily, such is not the case 🙂

    My top 5 fave novels are Jane Eyre, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Black Stallion, The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, and The Hound of the Baskervilles 🙂
