Nath Jones Can you add Crossing the Bar? Looks like there are two entries for The Brook.

Also, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is missing.

Thanks. Love this list!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You could add them; it's easy to add books to lists. At the top of the list, at the tab next to "all votes."


message 3: by Julia (new)

Julia The (very old, torn and yellowed) version that we have includes John Greenleaf Whittier with "Snowbound," "Among the Hills," "Laus Deo," and "The Eternal Goodness." I suppose I understand why they updated it with Poe, but I was a little sad to see him go.


message 4: by Rebekah (new)

Rebekah wow! I played it in the 70's and Poe was on there then. Now they have added hearts, clubs, spades and diamonds to the set and I don't remember Thackeray. Seems like there were fewer sets then. Not enough for a whole poker playing set like now

Pat Carlson My grandmother gave me a set of these cards which led to my lifelong love of reading

BookLovingLady Are you sure this particular edition of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (#34) by Bo Hampton is alright? Shouldn't that be an edition by Washington Irving?

I haven't played the game but A Christmas Carol and Other Christmas Stories: Christmas Festivities, The Story of the Goblins Who Stole a Sexton, A Christmas Tree, The Seven Poor Travellers, The Haunted Man, and Master Humphrey's Clock doesn't seem right either... Shoudn't it be 'just' A Christmas Carol?
