Jennifer (aka EM) Not yet! Just starting...(again). My edition is from high school. It's quite literally falling apart and the type is SOOOOO small. I might have to buy a new one!

Jennifer (aka EM) Now that I have bookshelf room, the sky's the limit!

Jennifer (aka EM) Yup!! Trying to figure out how to review it now...but really, what is there to say? It's so empowering. I like this re-reading of the classics: you get this really layered experience of what it was (and you were) when you first read it and what it is and you are now.
