    >Children's: Blackberries in the DarkClassics: Little MenNon-Fiction: HouseBook Club: The Blind AssassinAuthors: Stephen WhiteBook Bag: Roger ZelaznyThis seemed to me an obscure children's title, and the rest of you confirmed that!The Zelazny books are a family favorite–Ron gave me the first one when I was supposed to be studying for a final exam in college, and I was kind of mad at him, since he knew I wouldn't be able to do anything else until I finished it!And yes, at one point I read everything Alcott ever wrote.
