Let's see what we can come up with for a top 20 list of GAR books, one book at a time.

RULES:
1. Each person can add just ONE book to the list.
2. All books must be on the GAR list.
3. For each post, copy the preceding list. Number the list as we go.
4. You cannot take another turn until someone else posts, or 12 hours has past - whichever comes first.
5. To keep the posts short, do not hit "reply."

Hate to be the downer, but "Brave New World" isn't on the current GAR list, is it?

You're right Linda. If you spot one that isn't on the list you can skip it and add your own post. One game allows different books, so we might have mistakes from time to time.

Kimberly, in this game you don't need to make a whole list, just add one to the count. I added Anne of Green Gables for you, and Harry Potter for my turn.
