OK, will post my responses soon, although narrowing down some of the choices could be difficult.

You've lived in the UK? How long for? That's quite a range of countries you've lived in.

Great list! I love Rebecca, too, but I didn't put it on my list. There are always favorites that I don't think about until later...

And Sweden...awesome! My grandparents were born and grew up there.

Thanks for sharing the link to your list.

tracy - great! I'm looking forward to reading yours too. Yes, I lived in Woking when I was a child (3 - 7 years-old) I have very fond early memories of my years there. My dad's job had us moving every few years, which made for a stressful but -in hindsight- very interesting childhood.

laurel - there were so many books I could have used, I was tempted to create a couple more categories. But I was short on time this afternoon, so no.

I lived in Sweden also when I was a child, I think around 11 years-old?
