  1. To Kill A Mockingbird and Huckleberry Finn are dear favorites of mine. I have several different editions of Huck Finn, one which is annotated with Twain’s notes while writing it. I have Canterberry Tales but have not read all of it.

  2. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and Huckleberry Finn are on my list of classics to read. I need to broaden my Austen reading and will hopefully get to Mansfield Park then. I had forgotten about Madame Bovary. I read it years ago and really got a lot out of it. I should revisit it and To Kill a Mockingbird. Great list!
