Little Women.

Natasha

Oooh, good answer. It would be good with Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell too.

becky

Ok mine TOTALLY isn't an English classic, but I did download some Alexandre Desplat and listen to it while reading..."The Christy Miller Series". Hahahahahaha. I included a book, so that stil counts right?? But were I to win, I would listen while reading "Pride & Prejudice" or "Jane Eyre"

Natasha

Lucky for you winning is not based on quality of book choice. Ha.

Megan

Maybe if I was listening to that playlist I'd finally read my penguin classics edition of Sense and Sensibility - the pretty red and teal one.

lisa

ideally? i'd finish a farewell to arms, a classic, though an american one.

realistically? cosmo.

Ryan

Also, Becky, are you coming to Ladies' Retreat at Camp Evergreen? Because Robin Jones Gunn is our speaker.

becky

OH MY GOODNESS kerry...are you kidding me?? Hahaha that's SOOO awesome! When is it?

Jen

I'm so glad to see you reading Tolstoy! I read that book a few summers ago and couldn't put it down... well I could, some parts are definitely more readable than others. Still remember the last pages!
As for a book, I saw White Teeth up there. Got 100 pgs in and put in down, now my BF is trying to get through it. I've really been wanting to read Fall On Yours Knees. Check out the Canada Reads Book Club, a lot of fun stuff in there.

mom

Any of the 'Elsie Dinsmore' series. They are very old and English and I loved them when I was in grade 5 or so. I revisited them 10 years ago and still loved them.

michelle

Kerry, that is fantastically awesome. Becky, please go and leave a full report in Natasha's comments. If I were anywhere near Alberta I would totally be there April 16-18 (well worth the Googling). If only I still had the Christy Miller series to have autographed. :)

Kerry

April 16-18, and it's at Evergreen and it's going to be AMAZING. I'm sorry you are NOT in Alberta, Michelle, because it's going to be AMAZING!

Bethany

HOORAY!
