    "It's easy to forget that Amazon even has competitors these days, but Barnes & Noble is still my go-to. I read a lot of novels, and love having bookshelves filled with books. B&N seems to send me coupons all the time, and if you're lucky enough to still have a physical B&N in your area, you can buy online and often go pick up the book to skip the wait on shipping. Great selection as well."

      "I had forgotten how sad the ending was but how uplifting. Charlotte is a spider who befriends Wilbur the pig. Fern loves Wilbur whom she and Charlotte protect from being sent to the slaughterhouse. Templeton the rat helps and is the comic relief. I loved this book but I needed a box of Kleenex. It is so well written. The author pulled me into his world. I was so caught up in the story. The characters are wonderful. The humor is subtle but there. I could picture Templeton at the carnival. It is a great book."

      "Everyone has heard of Harry Potter, and with good reason. The books were wildly popular when first released, and continue to be an excellent read, entrancing a new generation of young readers and keeping them up late. The movies are also visually superb and a faithful depiction of the world of Hogwarts. Highly recommended."

      "I bought this book because I loved the movie and figured I would hopefully like the book almost as much at least. So far I have been loving it and thinking that this is one book that may actually be better than the movie. So many others have agreed with me. It is a true masterpiece and is the sort of work that will draw 'non-readers' into the reading world because it is just such a classic and also very important in our day of having people wrongfully imprisoned for various things. Definitely should be kept on the classics list!"
