Okay, so I've read 27 out of 100 (well, actually 26 still Narnia was in there twice). And I haven't finished 6 out of 100.

Its an interesting list, however, I think there were many books that should have been included that were left out entirely! Peter Pan by J M Barry comes to mind as one. What do you think? What other titles should have been included on this list?

" The Road that stretches before the feet of a man is a challenge to his heart long before it tests the strength of his legs. Our destiny is to run to the edge of the world and beyond, off into the darkness: sure for all our blindness, secure for all our helplessness, strong for all our weakness, joyfully in love for all the pressure on our hearts.

In that darkness beyond the world, we can begin to know the world and ourselves, though we see through the eyes of Another. We begin to understand that man was not made to pace out his life behind the prison walls of nature, but to walk into the arms of God on a road that nature could never build.

Life must be lived, even by those who cannot find the courage to face it....." --My Way of Life, Pocket Edition of St. Thomas

Hi, Welcome to my profile! I enjoy making plush dolls, fashion dolls, Bjd dolls, drawing, and painting.

I will be taking commissions for plushs and art, once I'm set up, so stay tuned. ^_^

I'm sort of a noob right now so please be patient with me. I'm a little nervous. >w<
