Classics: Kids & Travel (#82)

Ok, so I do realize the books that are considered classics will and does vary from list to list and person to person, but this is the list that I am going to be working through. This is the “501 Must-Read Books” list, which is published by Octopus Publishing (C/O Hachette, here in Canada) but is compiled with books from all publishers. There are some that I have already read and if I do re-read them, I will consider them a part of #104 on my list and not this one (#82) as they have already been read through once. The book has everything split into categories so I will keep that way on here as well as I feel that it helps keep it organized. I do so love organized lists! *smirk*

Also, I will be dividing the categories into four pages (most likely),  so the scrolling doesn’t go on forever on each page.

Anything with a check mark () beside it has already been read.
