I've read The Black Pearl (years ago) and had to read O Pioneers! in American Lit. I didn't enjoy it quite as much as My Antonia, but it was good.

I've read three of yours. My Thursday Thirteen is also about books today, and is also my third T13. Now I'm going to have to browse the rest of your blog to see what else we have in common.

Alice Adams! Thanks for reminding me of that book! I read it decades ago and thought it was a lovely throw back to another time. I wonder if I'd get more out of it now that I'm ... well ... no longer a shallow teenage brat.

A great list. Mine is all about books too. I read all but two of your books on the list. But then again, I am an English Teacher and a certifiable geek.
