Over half, if you account for all the extra material in a Norton Critical.</p> Felicity January classics 2011-02-01T19:18:21+00:00 2011-02-01T19:18:21+00:00 <p>So, did you finish War and Peace?</p> Elaine Corwin Great Idea 2011-01-03T07:25:49+00:00 2011-01-03T07:25:49+00:00 <p>Of course, I feel overcommitted already to another book, Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, but it may be long and gorgeous enough to be considered a classic. I just have to take the time to read at least a little bit every day.</p> Emily Re: i'm in 2010-12-31T20:25:04+00:00 2010-12-31T20:25:04+00:00 <p>No more parameters than that? Well, you could always join me in <em>War and Peace</em>. Plenty of room there for two :P</p> <p>Dickens? <em>David Copperfield</em> is quite good, as I recall. And of course there’s <em>Oliver Twist</em>.</p> <p>C. Bronte? One is informed by Joanna Russ’s book <em>How to Suppress Women’s Writing</em> that <em>Villette</em> is actually her masterwork, but was long passed over for its frank feminism. (I haven’t read it yet!)</p> <p>Virginia Woolf? Have you read <em>Mrs. Dalloway</em>? It’s so beautiful it hurts.</p> <p>Of course, you could read <em>Moby-Dick</em>. It’s delicious.</p> <p>Can you winnow from there by your lonesome?</p> Felicity i'm in 2010-12-31T19:28:08+00:00 2010-12-31T19:28:08+00:00 <p>But you have to tell me what to read. You name it, I haven’t read it, so it shouldn’t be hard. But I’ve read all of Austen. (Until they find the secret vault…)</p> sister_sledge
