KristenR Interested in a "Through the Decades" challenge? come check out The Well-Rounded Reader challenge group!


message 2: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Removed Thérèse Raquin, which was first published in 1867.


message 3: by Paul (new)

Paul Bowes Removed the compendium volume 'Erewhon & Erewhon Revisited': the latter wasn't published until 1901. Re-added 'Erewhon' as a single volume.

Checked for duplicates.


message 4: by Duane (new)

Duane On the Winds of Change by Misty Griffin (#84) is a modern book. It is set in the 1870's, but I believe this list is for books published in the 1870's.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Yep. Will remove.


message 6: by Fiona (new)

Fiona Hurley The Secret Garden was published in 1911.


message 7: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Deleted.

Also deleted Little Lord Fauntleroy, A Little Princess and The Making of a Marchioness none of which were published in the 1870s.


message 8: by Brian (new)

Brian Hurst I think maybe you got Spring Torrents by Turgenev in there twice, like #124 and #162?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I combined duplicates; that should have gotten it.
