  1. Wow, a few of these I’ve never even heard before. The only one I’ve actually read is Anne of Green Gables… I don’t know how I haven’t managed to read Peter pan at the very least. 🙂

  2. PETER PAN. That is my FAVORITE book cover for any Peter Pan ever. It’s so gorgeous. I have a copy because I couldn’t possibly pass that up. Also, I love Anne of Green Gables. I haven’t read many of the others, though.

    Great idea for the prompt this week!
