Twaddle-Free Book List

I met some women at Borders Book Store a few weeks back with some of the homeschool moms I know. My friend, Melissa introduced me to the Twaddle-Free Book List and I thought it would be great to pass this along and have it here next time I look for it.
Twaddle means dumbed down literature.
Here is the Charlette Mason Twaddle Free Book List
She includes direct links to Amazon so you can get a better idea of a book before you buy it or look for it at the library. If you've never bought a book from Amazon, I'd like to say that they offer free shipping to any order over $25. If you buy a second hand book through Amazon the free shipping does not apply. I've bought books from both Amazon and their venders and have never had trouble.

Here is part of her list:
