North and South – By Elizabeth Gaskell

Posted by Stevie: Tweet Back #neverendinglibrary Be warned, this ebook was reviewed by a hopeless romantic who enjoys wearing British cotton, and only British cotton.

Robinson Crusoe – By Daniel Defoe

Posted by Bartley: Tweet Back #neverendinglibrary Robinson Crusoe is in every sense of the word, a classic.

Pinocchio – By Carlo Collidi

Posted by Charlotte: Tweet Back #neverendinglibrary Oh Pinocchio you poor thing!
