  1. I just finished “Their Eyes Were Watching God” which I found absolutely riveting, and about to start Edith wharton’s “The Age of Innocence.” Today’s a nice gray day over here so it’s perfect for a day of cozy reading :).

  2. I am new to the blog. I may sign up for the classics list, but I need a little time to think about it.
    I just finished Dr . Thorne by Trollope, and I have not written my review yet. It was my first Trollope.
    I am about to embark on Brothers Karamazov with a friend, in April.
    This is my 3rd year doing the Back to the Classics challenge, and they have been the best years of my uneven reading life.
    I am a classics lover, but lately I am exploring more late 20th century and 21st century literature.
    I was born in Madrid, and I am having a blast rereading or encountering amazing am authors from Spain, and Latin American and Italians too.
    I love Benito Pérez Galdós, and I am always trying to get my friends to read him.
    I have lived in Texas 20 years, and something has happened to me, but I also love Southern Gothic, and Gothic lit too, from Dracula to Wuthering Heights, stopping at The Heart is a Lonely Hunter.
    Nice meeting you. I will be reading more of the blog.

  3. I’ve just started reading Deerbrook by Harriet Martineau. She was a Victorian writer who is known as one of the first female journalists and was also a feminist, sociologist, and abolitionist. I’m only on the third chapter but I like it very much so far.

  4. I’m new to your blog, but think it might be fun to join in ! I’m reading Brighton Rock by Graham Greene. Not sure I like it, but loved Our Man in Havana and The End of the Affair. 19th century classics are my favorite, and I recently finished Emma and The Woman in White.

  5. I’m currently reading Three Clerks by Anthony Trollope and Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. I’ve started a couple of other classics the past few weeks, but, have stalled. I don’t think reading multiple classics at the same time is the best idea 😉

  6. I’m currently reading The Moorland Cottage, my Elizabeth Gaskell. Earlier this week I finished Crooked House, by Agatha Christie. I’m really enjoying my classics reading!

  7. I have read Middlemarch and Crime and Punishment, and love them both. At the moment though I’m reading “Gilead” by Marilynne Robinson. It may not be an old classic, but I think it will be a classic with time. Such beautiful insights into the human spirit.

  8. Less than 200 pages left in Les Mis. It’s very good…but I think Hugo could have cut out 300-400 pages without damage to the story.

    1. I started Lady Ludlow last year on my Kindle app in an attempt to read all the stories that the miniseries of Cranford is based on, but I dislike digital reading and the story seemed boring, but I want to finish it.

  9. I’m currently rereading Paradise Lost, enjoying it even more than the first time (decades ago at the university), as since then, I have read The Divine Comedy. It’s neat to see the commonality and differences

  10. As time passes and more and more fiction comes under the definition of ‘classics’ promoted by the Club, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to stick to the original game plan.
