  1. So excited for you. You have plenty books that I remember fondly. And I have several of these on my CC II list also like #1, #27, all the Dickens, etc. Good luck!

    1. Thanks Ruth, good luck to you too.
      You have all the Dickens too in your list? It would be fun if we can read them together, then... :)

    2. I should rephrase that: I have Bleak House, Nicholas Nickleby, David Copperfield left, and I have to finish Pickwick Papers. As you can see, I am avoiding them b/c of the SIZE; but I could certainly use some encouragement.
