1. Great list! I don’t know if you’ve never read them before but if you haven’t you are going to LOVE All-of-a-Kind Family, The Saturdays and I Capture the Castle. Seriously LOVE. And The Dark is Rising is one of my favorite childhood books. In fact, like someone else who had a bookish honeymoon :), we went to Cornwall because of Susan Cooper’s series (Dark is Rising is the second in the series but you can read it first without being confused,)

  2. I should do something like this. I could at least make the list, right? : ) You will LOVE The Saturdays – we read two of the series outloud, and I *think* I finished it? I’m hoping to get to more nonfiction this year and read as much of CS Lewis as I can. We’ll see how that pans out. Oh, and I want to read Unbroken this year. That’s the one that you LOVED right? I think I saw that it’s fairly inexpensive on Kindle and so I hope this is the year that I finally get to it.

  3. All of my older children have read the Book of Three and the others in the series. Over the holidays, we listened to the audio while traveling. I think you will enjoy this one. So many valuable lessons sprinkled throughout the story. I was pleasantly surprised.

    I look forward to your thoughts on Swallows and Amazons. We recently attempted this as a read aloud. I was surprised at how the children and I didn’t really enjoy it. Very odd for us.
