  1. You have listed so many good classics! Many of those I also wish to read! If only there was more reading time available! :)

    1. I do as little housework as possible so I have time to read ;)

  2. Jane Eyre, French LW & Sense and Sensibility are 3 of my favourites.

    Good luck on Monday I hope the spin is kind to you. If you get the Wharton you might like to consider joining my Wharton Review in May :-)

    1. I will check out the Wharton review for May either way. The book is on my CC list so I may join in.

  3. I'm a big fan of this list. I've only read a handful of these books, but it looks like you'll end up with a great read no matter what number is spun. Enjoy!

  4. I've wanted to read In Cold Blood for a long time. One of these days... Happy reading!
