  1. I'm always amazed at the diversity in everyone's lists of classics. The only two of these I have read are Persuasion and Anne of Green Gables (love both). I'm in the challenge too but have yet to start on any of my choices.

    1. This is my first time to participate, so I'm looking forward to getting started. Will look forward to reading your reviews of your selections!

  2. Hi Monica! I've just signed up for this challenge as well. Happy reading!

    1. Hi, Lily--thanks for stopping by my blog! I'll look forward to reading your reviews of your selections.
