I don't know if I can count manga, but it was over 300 pages.

EDIT - I just finished the second one, too. So I'm definitely counting them for the challenge. I am pretty sure I can finish the 3rd one tomorrow. Those are all the ones I own. I checked Amazon and added 4 & 5 to my wish list, but stopped there as it appears to be loads of these in the series.

EDIT EDIT - 8/18/14 finished the third. Woot.

Wonderland is a place I've never been. I would go if given the chance, even though it's not the safest place to visit. :)

Uni gave me the first three in the series. They are also piled up on my stack of books to be shelved. I may go ahead and read the other two before tracking down a book that was made into a movie and a book I've loved my whole life.

I'm saving #10 for last. I'm not sure what I will pick. I was thinking Narnia but I've read those within the last five years. I even fairly recently read two of my most favorite books from childhood: Lizard Music and Star Girl. Lizard Music felt dated, but I still loved it. Star Girl was rather disappointing. Not so much because the science was so incredibly dated, but because the description of life on Venus was repetitive and non descriptive. I think I want something I loved as a child but also went back to all the way up through high school or afterwards. I have two I am considering. (1) Andre Norton - either Outside or Steel Magic, the first by her I remember reading. (2) The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander. But then I thought maybe The Famous Five or Swiss Family Robinson because I haven't read them since childhood despite reading them over and over and over as a kid. But I will have to track them down because I used to check those out of the Leon County Library.
