Wuthering Heights? Lord, I have read SO much fiction written by women of all genres, I don't know what to suggest. How about "Rebecca"?

I really enjoyed tonights discussion.!

I've been meaning to read Orlando and Madame Bovary. I'm to read Frankenstein for uni this fall (if I get a place on the course) so will have to read that sooner or later as well.

Other books on my to-read list:
The Awakening - Kate Chopin
Their Eyes Were Watching God - Zora Neale Hurston
Reading Lolita in Teheran - Azar Nafisi
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall - Anne Brontë

And I love Elizabeth Gaskellsmile

You need a kindle SGM! Then you could go on your holidays fully loaded with Jilly -- Cooper-- Jane Austen.

In my sorting and shifting of stuff I found this book again An Elegant Gathering of White Snows by Kris Radish I read it years ago and immediately bought half a dozen copies to give to friends! It's now on my 'to re-read list'

I remember loving it Stewie - will be interesting to see if I have the same reactions to it now!. Handmaiden's tale has now arrived in the post - so I'd better get cracking on that first :-)

I loved The Help!

When do we decide what to read? I'm going on holiday on Saturday (yipee!) and was hoping to be able to take the chosen book with me, but maybe it's too early?
