    About 20 years ago, I had a list of about 200 books that I wanted to read. I only wish I could find that list now. But I am going to make a list of 1000 books that I really should read. So here are a few of my favorites. I hope you have time to list yours. Then I may get a few more ideas. I am starting with a list of 200 I got from a best sellers list. It may take me a while to find all 1000.

    Here are my favorite books.

    1. Favorite of all time – Where the Red Fern Grows, Wilson Rawles (Did you know at one time he lived in Idaho Falls? He came to my elementary school and talked to us.)

    2. Book you could read over and over again – Robinson Crusoe, Daniel DeFoe, 1719. (Did you know there is several versions of this book, one is much longer.)

    3. If you could only read one book in one year, what would it be – Gone With the Wind, Margaret Mitchell, 1936. Still the most readable long novel ever written, with over 1000 pages. The movie came out in 1939, produced by David O. Selznick, winning 10 Acadamy Awards. ‘The Making of a Legend: Gone with the Wind’ has great history and insite about the filming of the movie.

    4. Honorable mention – Tom Sawyer, Mark Twain, 1876. Did you know Mark Twain wrote over 50 books?

    5. Honorable mention – 100 Pounds of Popcorn, Hazel Krantz, 1967.

    6. Honorable mention – Anne of Green Gables, Lucy Maud Montgomery, 1908, over 50 million copies sold.

    7. Honorable mention – And Then There Were None, Agatha Christie, 1939, over 100 million copies sold.

    8. Honorable mention – A Perfect Day, Richard Paul Evans, 2003. Mr Evans also wrote: The Walk, The Christmas Box, The Gift and many others.

    There is a book called Buy Ketchup in May and Fly at Noon. It has all kinds of tips about when to buy things and the best time to do things.
    You can find it on the Internet here. This link takes you to Amazon where you can look inside the book. It has about 20 tips you can read for free, then deside if you want to purchase the book. Used copies are also available.

    I got this tip from Lois, it is a fun and useful book.
