Time to mull the New Year's resolution list. In addition to the annual "I will be a better person in mind, body, and deeds" outline, I have decided to make a reading list. Books that I should have read eons ago, but never did.
This is where you come in: I need some read-worthy titles - classics, if you may. I don't want recommendations of the NYT bestsellers list or B & N's top 10. Something you have read and really enjoyed, or something that you have read which really stuck with you.
I do not like violence of any sort. (See: Wicked Monkeys, a few posts ago.)
No Dickens, please.
I think I have read all the Jane Austens (probably should re-read them for a refresher, and that would be MOST enjoyable!)
I like Shakespeare.
OK. Let me have some suggestions, s'il vous plaît.
