Celebrating Read Across America Week

In honor of Read Across America Week I herewith present my choices for the best children and adult books I've ever read.

It was more difficult than I thought coming up with this list. There are so many great books out there.

On top of that consider the many genres available: historical fiction, science fiction, mystery/thriller, adventure, fantasy, romance, etc.

Picking the children's books was difficult too. After all books for a four-year-old would certainly not be appropriate for a ten-year-old.

Nevertheless--and for what it's worth--here's the list.

How many have you read?

The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame
