  1. I have a read quite a few of them actually. I love the classics, Some I wonder how they got on the list, and why others are not there. A time to Kill would be one I would add. I’m glad Stephen King made the list, I, of course, would add more Stephen King!
    Have a great day!!

  2. these are all amazing books! Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was my absolute favorite book as a child. in all of our family photos i’m either reading it or cradling it hahahaha 😀 i’m saving this chart because i would seriously love to read all of these! i think i’ve only read eight so far. I love Where The Wild Things Are as an adult!!! it’s one of those POETIC children’s books
