Find a book or two listed below that will keep you interested for hours.
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
Published, considered one of the Great American Novels, studied by serious literary critics, banned by the Concord Public Library as trash more suited to the slums than to intelligent, respectable people, and banned in New York by the Brooklyn Public Library because Huck "not only itched, but scratched". You probably have seen it in film, may have watched it on stage, and most likely have heard the music. Now, read the book, the entire book. I dare you!

The Enchanted Barn is one of my favorites from Grace Livingston Hill.

How the barn is transformed into a lovely home is a pleasure to read.
