I absolutely love Jane Mount's Ideal Bookshelf series. This particular one is James Franco's (found here). Someday I'm going to have one of my own. These are the books I'd put on it so far:
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
Howl's Moving Castle
The Poetry of Robert Frost
A Beatles book (just about any will do)
The Journals of Sylvia Plath
Pride and Prejudice
Life of Pi
Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close
Winnie the Pooh
Agatha Christie (again, any will do)
A book of Norman Rockwell paintings
Other potentials include: Secret Garden, A Little Princess, Dracula, The Man Who Was Thursday, My Life in France, and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. These books all meant something to me at some point or other, but I'm not sure if they'd still be on the list.
What books would be on your ideal bookshelf?
