  7. I want #1…because I’m most interested in reading The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym from my list. I think your’s was the first list I’ve read…that has nothing I’ve read. Enjoy!

  8. I see a few books on here I’ve been meaning to read (The Secret Garden) so maybe when I finish my original CC list I’ll do one of children’s classics!
