  4. Impressive list! I've been sort of in the mood to read Ulysses again. I got the annotated guide though, so I could go through them together, and the guide is more daunting than the book!

  13. I have Into the Beautiful North and A Lucky Child in my TBR pile. I started A Lucky Child then had to put it down to finish a book for a blog tour and then haven't got back to it yet. Tsk. I'm pitiful. That is why I stopped with review books for a while!

  15. I remember having read Three Men in a Boat back in college but I'll have to reread it.
    I think you'll like Lucky Child. It's an important book and I enjoyed it very much.
