    I've read about the book, but haven't read the book itself. It sounds like a really good book! Thanks so much for your answer!

    That sounds really interesting! It's certainly not something I've heard of; I might have to look into it! Thanks!

    I'm very familiar with Warner's series! They are still incredibly popular today. I'm glad they inspired an adventurous side in you; it's great when books do that! Thanks for your answer!

    I've read enough Charles Dickens and other contemporary authors of his time to know their writing style; so I agree some of the lengthy descriptions were a bit tedious! I couldn't sit through Charles Dickens until I was 13 or 14. Thank you very much!

    Unfortunately I have not read much of Baum and his Oz books, but they are on my soon-to-read list! I'm glad you enjoyed them, thanks for the answer!

    I need to try rereading that one! I love Tolkien's essays and his later works (Children of Hurin, Silmarillion) but I was never able to finish the Hobbit and I don't remember why. It's been so long I probably could now! Thanks for your answer!

    I haven't heard of it, but I will look into it! I love finding new books to read, and new books to add to the collection at work! Thank you :)

    Yes, me too. Though I pretend it's for my granddaughter's benefit!
