Can we do a thread of booklist links?

I've been adding to our home library and have been getting ideas from Biblioplan, SL, Honey for a Child's/Teen's Heart, The Good and the Beautiful booklist, Read Aloud Revival, but I'm sure there are a ton of others. 

If you have a booklist resource you love with books that are still mostly in print- be it book or blog or whatever, will you link? All ages welcome- it doesn't have to be all encompassing of every age group.

We graduated from homeschooling in 2012, so many resources weren't around for us, but... In addition to SL booklists and ideas from many threads on these boards, I culled ideas from:
1000 Good Books, booklists by grade range
Ambleside Online, booklists by grade/year

Below is a "list of booklists" (lol)  that I've collected over time to help others. This may not be quite what you're looking for, as these aren't my personal use lists or necessarily even my personal recommendations, but were gathered as a resource. 😉 Warmest regards, Lori D.

Booklists to match a child's Lexile/reading level:
The Best Children's Books -- sub-divides each grade level into increments of Lexile reading levels
Kids Book Series -- allows you to search by age group; grade equivalent; Lexile or DRA or F&P reading level; or by book genre or alphabetical order

My friend began this spreadsheet and I added to it. It has Memoria Press (summer), Notgrass, Progeny Press, Center for Lit, IEW's books for boys and kids who would rather build forts all day, much of Ambleside, The Book Tree, Books that Build Character, etc. It's not super comprehensive. I was looking for correlations rather than something that had every book. I wanted to hit the books that many of them recommended.  😃
