I have to do this one before I count anything else, so I am going to give Great Expectations another go. I've been working on that thing since at least 2011!

The entire list can be found on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oprah%2...

Cheryl (6of8) | 220 comments Have you read any of the Thursday Next books by Jasper Fforde? It might help if you picture Miss Havisham as she is in that world. 😉

Of course, that is probably easier for me because I quite liked the book when I read it in college.

DragonGoddess | 3 comments I'm half tempted to slog through Anna Karenina, it would actually cover 4 different prompts: A book that became a movie, Oprah book, book in translation, and set in a different continent. And maybe forgotten classic depending on how you define it (maybe).

I'd count it as a forgotten classic. It's widely considered a classic, but it's not one that comes to mind right away if you aren't big on Russian lit.
