I hope you love #27. That one's my favorite novel. :)

What an eclectic selection of books! I am not familiar with a few of these and will have to look into them. I have Elizabeth Bowen on my list too. I like her writing style. And who can help loving Anne of Green Gables?

What an interesting and colourful list! I also have The Adventures and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, Around the world in 80 days, and Wide Sargasso Sea on my list, and really enjoyed them all. While I am looking forward to reading The Count of Monte Cristo, North and South and The Time Machine. I am currently reading Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell.

Happy classics reading :-)
