  1. Trollope's The Way We Live Now was so compelling that I even read it way past my bed time, which is unusual for me, since sleeping is my hobby.

  2. I read Don Quixote for the category! It's quite humorous, but unnecessarily long.

  3. Linked to my review on Daniel Deronda. Thanks, Karen.

  4. Can this be a single work that is not a novel? Because I might read Democracy in America this year. Would it count?

  5. Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. One of the best books I've ever read.

  6. I just finished Anna Karenina on audio (41 hours!) in only 19 reading 'sessions'. It's just so easy to listen to, and I really enjoyed it! I did just notice that in my sign up post I have my name as just 'Carmen' and afterwards I started using Carmen @ TheReadingTrashQueen. Is that a problem?

  8. Wife No. 19 was quite an interesting and insightful autobiography! Highly recommend it.

  9. I have read a great deal of Henry James and know how wordy he can be but "The Wings of the Dove" was a particularly hard book to read and absorb. I happened to be in Venice as I read the last part of the book which is set there, but while that gave me a backdrop to the novel it didn't make reading his endless opaque paragraphs any easier. James provided nice twist and puzzle at the end though.
