message 1: by Reese (new)

Reese Although there is no mention of drama or poetry in the list's name or in criteria for inclusion, should we assume that we do not have to limit selections to works of fiction? Other members have voted for AMADEUS, and I intend to add my vote to theirs. But allowing votes for literature that is not fiction means that the list needs to be renamed. Bettie, interesting list topic -- but fiction only or new name for list? Thanks.


message 2: by Reese (new)

Reese I just noticed that George Sand's autobiography is on the list, and I would like to cast a vote for it. But I'll wait until I find out whether or not you want nonfiction prose removed from the list.


message 3: by Reese (new)

Reese I decided to add three plays; they can be removed if you want to limit the list to fiction.

Yes, same thoughts here ...

Bettie haha - the list was made by 'bettie' yet I have only just voted on it!


message 6: by Bettie (new)

Bettie Have made some adjustments to the description box. I inherited this list at some point.
:O)


message 7: by Eleanor (new)

Eleanor My vote for "Gerontius" is shown as being 4 out of 5, but I think if I had found it on the first page, it would have been No 1. A wonderful book, especially for those who love Elgar's music.
