Top 10 List Begins

Are you an avid reader? We are! So much so that we actually have a contest going to see who can read the most books by the end of the year. Of course, this also means we have quite a few favorites lining our bookshelves (yes, that’s bookshelves plural!).

To kick off our book lists for the year, we thought we’d start with a Top Ten list of favorite classics from the 19th century, books we read as a kid or teen. Now, this is not an all-encompassing list by any stretch of the imagination, but we like to think of it as our very first list of favorite book titles. Did we include any of yours?
