Cardiff and books

I'm off to visit Cardiff today and I'm super excited! I'm a nerd and will be visiting the Dr. Who Experience among other things there....

Anyways I have a confession to make I love Pride and Prejudice, Emma, North and South, Jane Eyre, and Persuasion (you get the picture, right?) BUT I've only seen the movies... I haven't read these books.

On the bright side, I do want to read them and in fact I've compiled a list of books to read:
  • Jane Eyre
  • Pride and Prejudice
  • Emma
  • Persuasion
  • Little Dorrit
  • Les Miserables
  • Tess of the D'Ubervilles
  • Wuthering Heights
  • Middlemarch
  • The Picture of Dorian Gray
  • North and South (I've started this one and I'm about half-way through it BUT I've been half-way for awhile)
  • Sense and Sensibility
  • The Great Gatsby
Question to my literary friends - Anything else I should add to my list?

I started to read Les Miserables when we were on our trip to eastern Europe, let me just say, Victor Hugo is a bit wordy. It's good but wordy ;)

I think you should add Shane to the list. I have DVD for you to watch after you read the book. Alan Ladd is Shane. Love you.
