Sherry of Semicolon sees my Charlotte’s Web and raises me a dozen more excellent summertime books. It’s a marvelous list containing several of our family favorites—Swallows and Amazons, The Penderwicks, Roxaboxen—including young adult and adult selections which happen to feature not one, not two, but three novels that have places of esteem on my own personal Books That Have Moved Me Most Deeply list. (Hmm, there’s a list I’ll have to write someday.)
All of which is to say, I love Sherry’s taste in books.
