  1. Hmmm, I have read King Lear and part of Paradise Lost. I am in the middle of A Room With a View. Good thing my pension won’t depend on this!!


  2. I’ve read 7 on this list. My favourites are Sense and Sensibility, The House of Spirits and The Bean Trees. Three of my favourite authors. I own The Bonfire of the Vanities but haven’t read it yet.


  3. oh-oh only 4 in this list. Love these lists, Lynn! Thank you!


    • Even so, you are doing better than I am! I am almost embarrassed to say … I have read none on this list. Of course, I have watched the movie The Wizard of Oz, but I definitely need to read more! Thanks, Sue.


  4. I’ve read #s 377 & 391. I’ve seen The Wizard of Oz movie, but I haven’t read the book – yet. 🙂


I look forward to reading your greatly appreciated comments. Thanks for making my day! :)
