April:
Out of Africa
Anna Karenina
May:
A Clockwork Orange
North and South

Happy reading everyone!

Haha! Have no shame, that is why we are reading them :-)
There are an awful lot of classics that most of us have not gotten to yet!

Terri Lynn (terrilynnmerritts) | 4 comments Oh this is great!!! I have read THE MALTESE FALCON, THE WAR OF THE WORLDS, ANNA KARENINA, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, and NORTH AND SOUTH and look forward to reading them all again!!! The March readings are especially good. I can hardly wait. My birthday is March 8 and rereading THE MALTESE FALCON and THE WAR OF THE WORLDS is a wonderful gift for the month!!!

message 9: by Shelley (new)

Shelley | 54 comments I just read North and South on the airplane last summer. You have to hand it to the author: she's not as luminous as Dickens, but she tries harder than he does to portray working class life.

Didn't she die without having time to really finish the book?

Barbara (willcaxton) Didn't she die without having time to really finish the book?

No - that was Wives and Daughters; someone else finished that for her
