  13. Thomas Murphy says:

    Great list! I like Follow The River

  14. Sherry Compton says:

    Very interesting! I’m a librarian, and books play an important part in our lives. I think it’s interesting to learn what she read before she was an author. I would like to know what she reads now.

  15. Rebecca Parsons says:

    I like 5, 6, 7, and 9. All good reads..

  16. I did read Roots, and I also have many, many favorites that I keep, and re read when I want to go back and feel what I felt the first time I read them. I just finished re reading Fireproof Your Life, and have just started re reading The 10 People You Meet In Heaven.
    And of course, being a Grandma, and a in home childcare provider, I re read many books that the children love. It becomes so fun when they actually start telling me what is next, and word for word are able to quote many part of these books.

  17. I like this list I don’t have a lot time to read with three toddlers. I will be taking her word for it and selecting one of these next.Thanks for the list.

  18. I’ve read Roots, but I’d love to read The Good Earth as well.

  19. No, I have not read any of these books, and I don’t plan too. Too boring reading for me.

  20. I’ve read 5,7, and 8. If only I had time to read now! I would love to immerse myself in any good book right now.

  21. I read The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck, very good. I love to read & this is a great list.

  22. Christina Howell says:

    I have only started reading Les Mes so I haven’t read hardly any on this list. They look like to be good books. Now that I am done with my college degree I actually have time on my hand to read. I will definitely check some of these out! Thanks for the list.

  23. Lisa Jennings says:

    I read The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck so long ago. Was just thinking about finding myself a copy and reading it again!

  24. Ive heard about the Schindler’s List, but I havent ever read it. Wasnt it also made into a movie?!

  25. I’ve read Roots by Alex Haley. As a matter of fact, I just bought a new copy. I loved this book.

  26. judy gardner says:

    i have read The Good Earth and really enjoyed it!

  27. Caslynn Haas says:

    I feel lame for saying this but I haven’t read a single book on her list, even Les Mis! I need to buckle down and finally read that book, and maybe some others on the list.

  28. These are all great books, but none of them are on my top ten lists. My list begins with The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings (I have loved these books since high school 40 years ago).
