Tom Sawyer is a must, a classic & entertaining book.

Absolutely. I enjoyed it more than Huck Finn, though the latter is better from a purely literary perspective.

I did much better with this list than the high school list - I've read all of the books and the majority of the short stories. THanks again for sharing.
