"Try Giving Yourself Away"
by David Dunn
[non-fiction, third edition]
one of my favorite books.
I love the little anecdotes.

"Mardie's Adventures"
"Mardie to the Rescue"
by Astrid Lindgren, translated by Patricia Crompton.
[children's fiction]
Mardie's Adventures  was originally published in Sweden as Madicken.  The American translation is Mischievous Meg.  The translator is  Gerry Bothmer. A chapter is omitted from this translation, and Madicken/Meg is older than in the original.
Mardie to the Rescue, originally published in Sweden as Madicken och Junibackens Pims,
has never been translated for the American market, as several elements were considered unsuitable for children.


"Obvious Adams" 
by Robert Rawls Updegraff
with notes on doing the obvious 
added many years later by the author.
[fiction]
(openlibrary.org loan)
"The Sixth Prune"
[fiction]
Robert Rawls Updegraff wrote the
lovely book,"Try Giving Yourself Away", under
the pen name David Dunn

"Bertie Comes Through"

by Henry Gregor Felsen
[teen fiction]
{carrying over into next week}
(This was a great favorite of mine in high school
and junior high school)
