What Books Make You Feel Nostalgic? – GalleyCat

The kids at GalleyCat and Reddit talk about the books that make them nostalgic.  No Wrinkle in Time, no Podkayne of Mars, no Ayn Rand or Tolkein, no Salinger or Steinbeck, no Seuss or Sendak.  They seem to have read ephemera published between 1970 and 2000 that I doubt anyone will remember in another decade.  There’s not even any motherfucking Watership Down.

Or am I wrong?  Is there a memorable book on this list?
