  1. Hi again Alicia! Nice to see the progress on this blog — awesome stuff. We are going back soon (from 20th century to 1st) so this helps a lot. Thanks so much for putting this together. One suggestion I have for another source, which you’ve probably used, is Michael O’Brien’s A Landscape with Dragons. A lot of the books he lists at the end contain dates. Only thing is a lot of them are OOP/difficult to find.

  2. Thanks Stef! I do love the reading list in Landscape with Dragons. Did you know it was put together by Bethlehem Books? I often bring the list to rummage sales and library book sales to discover new treasures. I didn’t remember it having dates, I’ll have to take another look.
