  1. WOW, though I know I will never read all of these, I'm pinning it to my Book Lists Pinterest Board. : )

    1. Yeah...I'll never get to half of this list. Just something to work from. Most came from some sort of "greatest novels" list, or that a review or synopsis captured my imagination.

  2. Regarding Rider Haggard I would recommend "Nada the Lily" as being much better than "She and Allan". It's the life story of Umslopogaas, who appears in "Alan Quartermain".
