I scoured my brain for my earliest memories of my favorite books, and there were many of the childhood books that I read over and over, which are 1 - 11 in my list. I really enjoyed the Gilbert Grape book very much, if you haven't read it, it is a great coming of age type read. I just may read it again!

What are your favorite all -time books?
