Great list! I have A Tree Grows in Brooklyn on mine as well.

I loved Ella Minnow Pea. If it seems a bit 'sticky' at the first don't let it stop you. A very clever and wonderful book. The only other book on your list that I've read is The Woman in White. Really enjoyed it.

One of these days I want to read Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. Great list.
