"Top Ten Tuesday" is an original feature/weekly meme created on the blog "The Broke and the Bookish". This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at "The Broke and the Bookish".
It is now hosted by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.
Since I am just as fond of them as they are, I jump at the chance to share my lists with them! Have a look at their page, there are lots of other bloggers who share their lists here.
Books Written Before I Was Born
What a wonderful topic. I have fewer books to choose from than many other bloggers since they have to be at least 60 years old. But there are plenty of great books that were written before my time and I enjoy them a lot. I have listed my favourite books of the authors that I enjoyed as a young person as well as some that I only got to meet in later life.
