Books I Want to Read in the Next Year {Autumn Blog Challenge}

One of my favorite past times is reading.  When we moved to Pennsylvania, I was 10 years old {in 5th grade}.  I had a hard time-a new school, new church, new state, plus more unknown.  I would bury myself in books-often reading until 1-2 AM.  Looking back some of the books I read were junk and I do not want to encourage my daughter to waste her time reading them {think Sweet Valley Twins-what was I thinking?}, but others were worthwhile, such as Anne of Green Gables.  I still enjoy reading, but it's harder now with more responsibilities.  Some of the books I want to read in the next year are...

Nonfiction:
One Thousand Gifts: I started reading this already
Organized Simplicity
Helper by Design
Books about American history, biographies, etc.
Books on Irish/British history

Fiction:
To Kill a Mockingbird: I read this when I was a freshman in high school and could not put it down.
Read the Harry Potter series {Read Book 1 already}

Knitting Books:
The Knitter's Handy Book of Top Down Sweaters
Knitting Green

Do you have any book recommendations?
