Actually, I never said it was a children's fantasy books meme - that was Kelly's construction (because she originally challenged me to create a fantasy book meme). If you check my original meme on my Blog (which Kelly linked), it's "50 children's and YA books", because I wanted to include the small number of good non-fantasy books I've read and loved...
