I would also prefer all the originals not the dumbed down versions.
1. Little House complete set
2. Elsie Dinsmore complete set
3. Anne of Green Gables complete set
4. Little Women complete set
5. A selection of Beverly Cleary (Ramona is a must!)
6. The Secret Garden
7. Peter Pan
8. To Kill a Mockingbird
9. Swiss Family Robinson (you are stranded, right?)
10. Holy Bible KJV
Does one look for unabridged versions to make sure that you have the author's original thoughts? Do you have suggestions about how to tell you have the original text?
