The weird one was the Winnie the Pooh book...I don't think I'd include that to the list. Lol. Great list of the classics nonetheless. I must admit, I read more cookbooks right now! The photos are the best. I wonder how many cookbooks I could list if I tried? Maybe I need a "to read" cookbook list...that'll be a future project. Copy the list and try to see how many you can bold. Have fun! I hope this list motivates you to browse the Classics section of the library. Truly amazing stuff hidden in there.
