  1. Wow. A little light reading for the springtime, eh?

    I love that you're rereading the Little House again. No idea why that makes me happy, aside from the fact that my parents read them to me so often when I was a kid, but I think it's cool you return to the series so often :-)

  2. What a great list! I need to read Burke sometime... everything I've learned about him in the past leads me to think I'd like what he had to say.

    Jude vs. Tess... I haven't read either of them, but I watched a PBS version of Tess. It was hard to watch, the subject matter is pretty heavy.

    1. I have high expectations for Burke -- mainly for its content -- so I hope it's good.

  3. What a tough list!
    ...and I thought you wanted to take a break? :)
    I still cannot make up my mind to read City of God. Maybe I'd read your review first before deciding.

    1. I was, really, but I have caught up and I am ready to read and write.

      I'm going to write a review of City of God Part I before I begin Part II. For starters . . . I did like it immensely. I'm ready to try part II. However, because it is soooooo looooooong, one may want to take a break from it every so often, which is very doable b/c he wrote in short sections. But overall it is a philosophical book (I think).

  4. A friend of mine hates Tess but loved Jude the Obscure. He also hates To Kill a Mockingbird and loves Gone with the Wind and A Tale of Two Cities. I've never read a Hardy novel -- yet. :)
