I've always wanted to read Riddle of the Sands by Erskine Childers. I love me some spy novels and I've seen this on a couple of those Best Books of All Time lists. Or how about Peyton Place for some nostalgic scandal value?

Once February comes, I'm in!


How about the first Gormenghast book? I've been trying to read it for a couple months, but it's so goddamn heavy (literally--I've got that paperback 3-in-one and it must weigh 7 or 8 pounds) I keep putting it down, and then when I pick it up again I've forgotten who everyone is. And I really like it (or the 40 pages I've read 6 times now).


Ooo, yeah. I'd love to read that one -- I've been meaning to for so long. And I still haven't read Armadale. Or Jamaica Inn.


Ooo, good idea. I've been wanting to read that FOREVER.

Also, I've never read Armadale. Or Jamaica Inn.


Ooh, I vote for Jamaica Inn! That's the one with wreckers, right? I meant to read it before I went to Cornwall in August but didn't have time. And one day was just too cold to surf, so I dragged my husband to the Jamaica Inn, anyway. It was cool, but they make a very weak gin & tonic. :(

No Ivanhoe. Yet. Although I did just tour the Rosenbach Museum & Library the other day, which has a lovely portrait of Rebecca Gratz, who was the inspiration for Rebecca in Ivanhoe.


I recently finished Gentlemen and Players by Joanne Harris...that's a school based literary mystery that I think you'd like!


Since you're thinking Ivanhoe, re-read Betsy in Spite of Herself (by Maud Hart Lovelace) first.
