book cover: 100 Must-Read Classic Novels.

Yes, I've read yet another book in the 100 Must Read… series. I've said it before: I love reading about books, and I have particularly enjoyed this series.

That said, this may be the last book in the series I read for a while. The book on graphic novels hasn't been available on Amazon for a while, and I'm in no great hurry to read about crime novels, historical novels, or life-changing books, the only other remaining titles. Unless the former unexpectedly becomes available or I suddenly want to explore the other genres (life-changing books?), this may be it for a while. And that may be a good thing: My personal library has bloated to over 1100 titles thanks in no small part to recommendations from these books.

100 Must-Read Classic Novels maintains the same excellent standard Rennison and his colleagues established in the other 100 Must Read… titles. I very much enjoyed reading the introductory material and the blurb for each novel. There were no real "a-ha" moments, as I had heard of all but maybe a half dozen of the authors discussed, but reading this has rekindled my interest in the older books in my collection and wishlist.
