Great list. I'm curious, why The Mayor of Casterbridge? I love Hardy, have this one on my shelf, but haven't read it yet...

I read it years ago at school, the first Hardy I ever read and loved it!

This was the first Thomas Hardy book I read as well...and absolutely LOVED it!! Kudos for The Stand as well!! I *almost* put it on my list as well!!

May have to read "The Mayor of Casterbride", although I did not enjoy 'Far From the Madding Crowd'. I had no idea that so many other people loved 'The Stand' as much as I did. Good choice.

Hey there! I'm tagging you for the "8 things about me" meme. Details are on my blog. Hope you don't mind!

I read Esme when it first came out, and really enjoyed it. That principal was a really annoying burn-out case.

Hi there! To stray a bit off topic, I see that you're reading The Shadow of the Wind! I read that last year and loved it! I've been looking for more books by that author, though I don't think anything else that he's written has been translated into English yet. Interested to see what you think! I hope you like it!

I've just tagged you for the "Eight Things About Me" meme. I see Gentle Reader also tagged you. Oh, well, double-tagged. :)

Thanks so much for listing So Many Books, So Little Time on the Something About Me challenge. I finished it this morning (after staying up late last night reading it) . My To Be Read list has grown quite a bit as a result.
I'm also glad to have found your blog
