Now This is an Interesting List

Complete list - 2005 [OCLC - OCLC Top 1000]: "The 'Top 1000' titles owned by OCLC member libraries—the intellectual works that have been judged to be worth owning by the 'purchase vote' of libraries around the globe."

Thanks to The Little Professor for the link.

I always thought it was A Child's Garden of Verse (not Verses)--it's in the basement somewhere. And I know it's not Farner Boy.

I've read half the first hundred and almost half the second hundred. That's if seeing it performed on stage, listening to a tape, reading parts, and reading the Classic Comic count.

Good to know libraries are still stocking the essentials.--Karin

I must admit, I almost chuckled and almost gasped at #16...a bit of a suppressed grunt, but it left me less surprised than I might be...had I not worked in public libraries...

Are you sure you're not referring to number 15? 16 is Tom Sawyer.

I find it interesting that a Harry Potter book was higher on the list than the U.S. Constitution.

Not surprising mind you... just interesting.
