In total we ended up with...
58 funniest passages,
60 most poetic passages, and
102 most memorable passages ...
for a grand total of 220 great passages from children's books! At some point in the next couple of weeks, I'll figure out a format to give people easy access to these quotes.
Many many thanks to EVERYONE who participated:
