  7. Once again the Classics Challenge has led me to a fascinating book I would probably never have read otherwise. A very interesting book with lots of thought-provoking twists and turns.

  10. I read Uncle Tom's Cabin for this category. It was tragic indeed, but so well worth reading.

  11. It feels awkward to use a book that was mentioned as an example, but as it'd been on my TBR I figured it was alright. Problem is that I could only get my hands on the Penguin Reader version, which means I read nowhere near the actual novel. My copy was only 90 pages. I had hoped it'd only be simplified language, but alas. I have an order at the library for the full novel, but just in case I won't be able to read it in time, I am counting this prompt as fulfilled.

  12. I read The Mill on the Floss. I liked Eliot's writing style, but not the story.

  13. The Good Soldier is beautifully written. I read it several times over the years, each time enjoying it more and understanding more of what the author is getting at.

  14. It was The House of Mirth for me. Not very mirthful! But great.
