Not sure if you’d call them novels, but at one time I read every Louis L’Amour book written. Even later on I’d buy his newer books. Sometime after Uncle Sam and moving around, I lost my entire collection.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, ditto Huckleberry Finn.
I always liked Mark Twain's wit and sense of humor.
I also read every thing I could find that Jack O'Connor wrote in the Outdoor Life Magazines.
Corey Ford and Ed Zern articles too in Field and Stream, Sports Afield, etc.

The novels by Dr. Seuss were pretty good too. Classics such as 'Green Eggs and Ham' and 'One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish' are hard to beat.

John Steinbeck was my favorite author as a youngster. Tortilla Flat, Cannery Row, Sweet Thursday, and Travels with Charlie were the best in my recollection. I ought to search them out and read 'em again.

I don't remember the author (can probably google it), but another one I really liked as a second-grader was "Two Logs Crossing". It was about an independent young trapper.

"Old Man and the Boy" was wonderful.

Small Town D.A. by Rob't Traver.

I read every Hemingway novel written by the time I was 14.

My favorites were Death in the Afternoon, The Old Man and the Sea, and For Whom the Bell Tolls.
