I am reading Ruth in August and have Rob Roy on order from the library. These will be my first two books

The Return of the Native is a great book. I have Lorna Doone on my bookshelves. This year might be the right time to read it.

News from Nowhere is an interesting book. I have always enjoyed that type of utopian literature.

I had to change some of my original choices as I wanted to do some authors from countries other than England.

My challenge is complete for the first, bronze, level. My favourites I think were The Pioneers and Doctor Thorne.
I read:
4 English authors
2 Scottish authors
1 Irish author
1 American author
1 French author
1 Russian author

I really enjoyed The Pioneers but loved Doctor Thorne. It is one I am going to reread.
