Amanda’s Top Ten Tuesday – Books Written Before I was Born

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week we talk about our top ten with a different topic provided by Jana. This week’s topic is books that were written before I was born. A suggestion was books I want to read or have read, I’m going to do books I’ve read.

The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis
