    Harry Potter is fine too. I understand your thoughts, myself having a Christian background. Have you read them? Very fun fantasy. Classics are wonderful. Parents need to read or re-read too. I am.

      Harry Potter is good and probably will become a classic eventually but right now it’s not old enough.

  7. The later diskworld series have gotten darker and less fun to read. Also my favorites missing from the list were Tripods, Day of the triffids, and Harlon Ellison’s Memos from Pergatory. Overall, a good list.

  8. Great reference list. My oldest has read at least 25 of these, including lots of the series.

  9. Not too bad of a list with a few exceptions (Harry Potter). I would like to see more Christian authors.

      Harry Potter rules and just because it’s about wizards doesn’t mean it teaches witchcraft!

    • In response to “The Indian”, I think Harry Potter should be on there. I know a lot of people object to books that contain references to magic, but I don’t really think that you should worry about that with Harry Potter. It is rather dark though.
      I think that Inheritance series-Eragon,Eldest,Brisingr should be on there as well. Speaking of which, I wonder when Christopher will finish the series.

    • harry potter rules!
