  •  Great number! (6+ / 0-)

    I worry that some of these books are not available anymore in small libraries.  It is one reason I keep so many books.

      and rarely wait long.  

      They have a section for books they consider classics, and many of these books on the list are in that corner.  I have checked out many on the list, but they don't reach the top of the pile when I can read something by Louise Penny.  

      I finished Sargent's Daughters, which is a long book about a painting, "The Daughters of Edward Boit".  I never would have read anything like this.  I understand how the politics of the time influence art criticism. I had to read it with google image available, as there were references to many other paintings.

        I got the latest Susan Hill with Simon Serrailler in the mail, today, and I will start it tonight.  :)  But then there will be a long wait for a new one...sigh.
