Now I'm on the second of the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. This is about a woman who gets transported from WWII Scotland to 18th century Highlands and the romance that ensues. I've waited for 16 people to borrow this ahead of me at the library so I'm very happy to have it in my hands. In fact, it's hard to do anything but curl on the couch/bed/floor to devour the words. It's that good!
And in the on-deck circle is Pride and Prejudice on my new nook e-reader (it came standard, but everyone says it's the best of Jane Austen, and I was planning on reading that one anyway). Whenever I mention that I've never read any Austen, everyone is always shocked - I have NO idea how I managed to get thru middle/high school and then college without ever picking it up. I also don't know why my mother didn't go ballistic one day and sit me down with the whole series. I really hope I enjoy it as much as everyone says I will. [I tried to read Madame Bovary because it's a "classic" and couldn't get past page 50. Husband was APPALLED.]
If you can remember from my 101 list, I have a whole section devoted to READING:
65. Read five Jane Austen books (0/5)
66. Read 5 “classics” that I never read in high school or college (0/5)
67. Join a book club
68. Ask 5 friends to recommend a book, read all 5 (0/5)
So dear readers and friends, I need your help. I know the first Jane Austen book to read, but I need help figuring out the others and in which order. PLUS I need some suggestions for number 68. What are your favorite books that I should read? I love fantasy and romance and a good story.
Thanks in advance!
