I'm glad Thoreau and Austen made the cut! But I completely understand your #1 selection. I'm excited to reread them! :)

I read All Quiet on the Western Front this year too and I was blown away by it! It's beautifully written.

Well, it looks like you've been enjoying the biographies much more than I have. I did LOVE Up From Slavery and The Story of My Experiments With Truth though. I completely endorse your #1 choice. I must read them again and sooner rather than later.

About #1: Me, too. If reading is an escape, then those are the stories that make everything else disappear.

Ruth said...

It sure was.

Ruth said...

Aww, I'm sorry you are not enjoying them. Who knows: maybe you'll find a few other favorites.

I know you did not want to compound your reading challenges next year, but you could also add the LH reading challenge...one book a month...

cleopatra said...

Yikes, I'd forgotten about that challenge. Thanks, Ruth! ;-) Hee, hee ......

What a fine list! I'm glad to see Jane Austen's book included; Persuasion is my favorite Austen novel, but I know that many readers prefer others. All the best from R.T. at Beyond Eastrod.

I have to restart Walden someday. I was 4/5 done, and left it on a plane. Never took it up again. Nice list.

Ruth said...

Oh, bummer. Well, I hope whoever got your copy enjoyed it.
