  1. I read The Never Ending Story this year too – loved it. But I don’t know if I’d give it more stars than A Little Princess! That’s basically my favourite book.

    1. I will say that it was a tough one, and I think it was just my sheer excitement over the book since the movie has been my 2nd favorite since I was a wee lass. hehe. A Little Princess though. . . I grew up watching three different movies and adored all of them, so it is interesting that they were not the same, but it could be because the unique plot and tie of things done in The Neverending Story just gets me in MORE deeply!!

  2. I really want to read Uncle Tom’s Cabin. I ALMOST bought a vintage copy when I was in Detroit, but I didn’t because Kyle thought we had it, we don’t. It is on my list on paperback swap!
