"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Top Ten Tuesday (6)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers’ answers. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND post a comment on our post with a link to your Top Ten Tuesday post to share with us and all those who are participating. If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.
The topic this week is: Top Ten Childhood Favorites!

Nate the Great by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat

There you have it.  I was able to really narrow it down to my all time, most read, falling apart books when I was a kid.  I still own each of these books, and I'm going to read them to my kids one day.  If you haven't had a chance to read any of these, indulge your inner child and pick one up!  If you have read them, leave me a comment!  I always love to share the love of books!


  1. This is a fabulous list! Love every book on it.

    (Thank you for the list and thank you for the reminder to DFTBA....I will aim for awesome-ness today!)

  2. OOooo Where the Sidewalk Ends is a GREAT one! I should have thought of that, lol.

  3. Excellent choices!
    Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday post. :)

  4. The Berenstain Beras were definitely a childhood favorite, as was Dr. Seuss. But when I got old enough to read on my own, it was usually Shel Silverstein!

  5. This is the second post I've seen to feature The Stinky Cheeseman! I loved that book!!
