Top 100 Children's Novels

As we are often found doing, several coworkers and I were discussing books. What a surprise! Who would have thought that youth librarians would discuss *gasp* reading? lol

The most recent discussion was started by Sarah K. She asked me how many of the Top 100 Children’s novels I’ve read (from the list that has been posted in length on the Fuse #8 blog). Of course this meant I had to copy the list into an Excel document and then pour over it, highlighting the ones I’m fairly certain I’ve read. So far the number is around 50. There might be one or two more, but I’m not sure. There are only a few days left before all 100 novels are announced. How many have you read?
