I've read oe in each category (In His Own Write and The Spy Who Came in From The Cold), but it seems odd to classify In His Own Write as non-fiction!
This Rough Magic is one of my favorite Mary Stewart books, and I love The Spy who came in from the cold. I had to read Profiles in Courage in 6th grade for a Great Books class -- I'm not sure it's really a great book, but I enjoyed it at the time. I've read the John Lennon book and probably the Peanuts and James Bond books, too, but I can't say for certain.
It's funny - as soon as I saw the year I thought of the John Lennon book, but I didn't know it was a bestseller. Huh. I keep meaning to add that book to my collection.
I just re-read The Rector of Justin about 2 months ago, lovely book.
