Here are My Eight New Books:

1. The Dead Secret by Wilkie Collins
2. Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell
3. Mary Barton by Elizabeth Gaskell
4. I Say No by Wilkie Collins
5. A Rogue's Life by Wilkie Collins
6. Melmoth the Wanderer by Charles Robert Maturin
7. Through a Glass Darkly by Sheridan Le Fanu
8. Blind Love by Wilkie Collins

Mind, all of these books are classics and all of them will have me planted on a couch reading for weeks. While at Borders tonight Dear Sir consented to me purchasing the Oxford Chronology of English Literature. Gee whiz, I will have a field day with that. Endless book titles at my fingertips. Hardy had a column of his own, the scoundrel. This is good for my future in expertise of the tragic Victorian novel.

So there you have it, Shealy.

I'm on a 20th Century American Lit kick right now. Three Salinger books in the last 3 days!

I think I have read #7

Shealy---You are welcome!

Alisa---That sounds cool. One of these days I will get back on Steinbeck and Faulkner. Just don't read the corncob one----uh, Sanctuary. Well, if you want to read it, it is just disturbing.

Dapoppins---cool. Is it good?
