  1. My latest classic was Jane Eyre. I suppose it doesn’t count since it was a reread. But I always find something new to chew over, some new little sentence pushing it’s way forward to stand out among all the other sentences, so I felt as though it was a new experience.

  2. I’ve gotten into the habit lately of reading children’s classics aloud to my baby while feeding him before naptimes, since he’s the reason I’m focusing mainly on that particular stack of classics. We just finished re-reading (for me) Alice in Wonderland last week, and now I’m reading him the complete Winnie The Pooh (first time for both of us).

  3. Just back from a discussion on ‘Pendennis’ by William Makepeace Thackeray, with the Brussels BrontΓ« Reading Group. Great discussion on a great book. It is rather long, 913 pages, and I read about eight hours today to be able to finish it. It was worth it. I loved “Vanity Fair’ when we read it, so much into Thackeray for the moment.

    • I fell in love with Thackeray as a child. George Osborne broke my heart and I hated Becky Sharp with a burning passion! He does have a way of pulling you in. I hadn’t heard of ‘Pendennis’, so that’s definitely going on my reading list! πŸ™‚


  4. I have several books happening together as well – Doris Lessing’s “The Golden Notebook”, Oscar Wilde’s “The Picture of Dorian Grey” and Lost Enlightenment: Central Asia’s Golden Age by Frederick S Starr


  5. I just finished “An American Tragedy” by Theodore Drieser, and last night started “O Pioneers” by Willa Carther. I only have until February to hit my 50 classics in 3 years, so I am bukling down with the reading!


  6. I always have several things going, but I have two CC titles right now: Hawthorne’s House of the Seven Gables (for RIP X, not very Gothic so far) and Dostoyevsky’s Brothers Karamazov, which is beautiful but also takes concentration and so I’m going slowly. Much of my reading happens while I’m doing other things, and I can’t do that with Dostoyevsky!
