  1. Aw, don't be ashamed, I came quite late to Jane Austen too! There are just so many books... and so little time!


    Here's my list. If you're interested :)

  2. I have Roth on my list too! I haven't read any Austen yet, but I'm hoping to make up for it next year. Do you have any plans for new authors for next year? Happy TTT! :-)

    1. Oh yes...I doubt I'll ever have a year without someone new. New-to-Me authors on the horizon for 2016: Henry Fielding, Henry James, Theodore Dreiser, and Ayn Rand, perhaps a few more. Cheers.
