  1. Oh boy – I got The Last of the Mohicans, which I have attempted at least twice before. This time I am determined to get through it!


  2. It’s quite exciting to see what everyone got. I read quite a few of those and they are all good. Enjoy your read, ladies.

    The #5 on my llist The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux.

    1. The best thing about reading this essay is seeing how much progress has been made in the area of women’s rights and equality. The worse thing is seeing how much of it still feels relevant. Woolf was a product of her class as well, which shines through everything she says.

    1. Steinbeck can be depressing, but my very faint recollection of Cannery Row is that it is not. However, you might be calling me a liar in a few weeks.


    2. Cannary Row has some great characters in it! I think you will be pleasantly surprised and entertained by it. John Steinbeck is one of my favorite authors. Although he picks deep subjects, the way he writes and the funny idiosyncrasies he notices in humanity really shine thru in his characters. I hope you enjoy it more than you think.


  3. No. 5 on my list is The Great Gatsby. I am happy with that result… and it is a short book, so I won’t have problems fitting it in.

  4. My Antonia by Willa Cather. Wouldn’t have been my first choice, but certainly not my last. Actually, I’m quite pleased with it.

    1. It’s a long one, but Dickens is so good. I have had really good luck with his books reading them a chapter-a-day. It helps me enjoy them without being overwhelmed by the length. It’s how his original readers experienced them which I think adds something to the experience.

      1. Great tip! Love Dickens as well, but never thought of how his original readers experienced his works. He was published in magazines at the time, is that correct?


  5. #5 for me is Madam Bovary and my “bonus” unreadshelf book is The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin. I’m OK with these picks.
