So they decided to continue what they called "The Streak," including such diverse works as Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, the Oz books by L. Frank Baum, Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, and Shakespeare's plays. Alice's father read aloud to her every night without fail until the day she left for college.
