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 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.


message 10: by Tristrom (new)

Tristrom Cooke There are a few mis-placed entries:
Peer Gynt (1867)
The Mayor of Casterbridge (1886)
Sans Famille (adaptation 1962) of Nobody's Boy which correctly appears later in the list.
From the Earth to the Moon (1865)

Removed them. In the future please give the place # on the list and what page the book is on. Makes removal a lot easier.
