Top 100 Chapter Books Poll

I love these polls that Fuse#8 does. Last years gave me so many good book ideas and I found favorites I didn't even know exsisted! I cannot wait to see how this one rolls out. I am going to keep track of the 100 books and cross out all the ones I have read. Here was my own list as a refresher, and these the posts (1, 2, 3) I did after that of books I missed.

Here are some of my predictions:
*the top book will either be Charlotte's Web or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
*of the books on my list: The Penderwicks, Peter and the Starcatchers, and Homer Price will not make the 100 list at all. I am really hoping Diary of a Wimpy Kid makes it, but I am not holding out much hope.
