SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

September Book a Day #25: Recommended by Parents

Bleak House - Charles Dickens, Hablot Knight Browne, Nicola Bradbury Lucky Jim - David Lodge, Kingsley Amis Dombey and Son - Charles Dickens, Jonathan Lethem Middlemarch - Michel Faber, George Eliot

Both parents: Bleak House.  Father: Lucky Jim.  Mother: Dombey and Son.  (Love all of them, by the way.)


Still unread, because I'm still afraid of George Eliot after a nasty, nasty experience 30 years ago: Middlemarch.


(My parents recommend me classics; they're English professors.)
