Book Suggestions

Me, vague? Surely you jest! :-)

So here are my suggestions:

"Economics in One Lesson" (Hazlitt) is my choice for the Economics book. I might also recommend "The Richest Man in Babylon" by George S. Clason.
Other books:
"Alas, Babylon" by Pat Frank
"An Old-Fashioned Girl" by Louisa May Alcott
"Carry On, Mr. Bowditch" by Jean Lee Latham
"Cheaper by the Dozen" by Frank B. Gilbreth and Ernestine Gilbeth Carey (not the movie - i prefer the original)
"Little Britches" by Ralph Moody
"Number the Stars" by Lois Lowry

of Julia's books I am choosing books that I have not read before and am interested in:
The House of Seven Gables - Hawthorne
The Search for Delicious - Babbitt
Onion John -
Tale of Despereaux - DiCamillo
Crispin - Avi
The Wheel on the School -
Invincible Louisa (about Louisa May Alcott)

I will read just about anything!

I would like to say that from Kelly's list I would like:

Carry on Mr. Bowdich &
An Old-Fashioned Girl

Like Kelly, though, I will read anything.... Except "The Devil we Knew" just because I didn't get it in time enough! (hee-hee)
