    I love Nancy Drew as kids.

    I was going to blog about 13 books, but my list is either short of 13, and over 13 and I didn’t want to drop any one my list. LOL. This is great idea. I hopeyou don’t mind if I copy it on some future TT list. The idea of favorite books.

    LOVE Goodnight Moon. We always give this to friends who have babies. My dad read Little House books to me at night when I was little.

  9. Chaotic Mom Says:

    We absolutely LOVE Little House and Love You Forever here. I watch Little House on some days just to get that “happy 70’s feeling” I had when I was a kid. 😉

    I’ve posted my Thursday Thirteen, too. Enjoy!

    I devoured the Zion Covenant series but just couldn’t get into the Zion Chronicles. Great list! I’ll have to read Les Miserables someday. I hope you have some time to stop by my blog and see my Thursday Thirteen about the world when I was born.

  16. Jenny Says:

    Gail, I like your list. It’s hard to pick just 13-I know! I loved the Zion series…cried my way through most of them, boy I learned alot of history I didn’t know though. Goodnight moon is the first book for all my kids, would read it every night while they are little. I find myself reciting it in my head sometimes when I can’t fall asleep.

    thanks for visiting my TT,
    blessings to you this week,
    Jenny in Ca
