So glad you're joining the challenge. I forgot when I wrote my list that I wanted to read The Three Musketeers. Loved the move, Scarlet Pimpernel and the soundtrack for the musical, but I haven't read it yet. Someday I want to see it on Broadway along with Wicked.


I think I've read more classics this year due to all the book blogs too! It's great. I love your list Danielle. I'm still working on mine but will post it soon. Gah, how I hate to commit to a book list though :)


You're going to have a busy winter, Danielle! I read "Age of Innocence" last February, I think, and it was the perfect thing for that time of year.


Ooh, we can compare notes on Cheri! I might be slow at reading mine though, it's in French and I haven't read anything but newspaper articles in French for years. Could be interesting...

Carl V.

Either that or you need to buy a more industrial strength nightstand to hold up under the weight!

Sounds like we will be reading The Three Musketeers together! The Scarlet Pimpernel - I've seen the 1934 (I believe that's correct) movie version several times. Lesley Howard (you may remember him as Ashley in the movie Gone With the Wind) was at his best in the role of the Pimpernel. I've read the book, too, and loved it. This is one for the re-read pile :)


Booklogged--They made the Scarlet Pimpernel into a musical? I hope I get to it. I will eventually anyway!
Iliana--My lists are always changing, too. It is hard to "commit" to reading certain books aheadof time--what if your mood completely changes? But it is fun to think about it anway.
Ella--Yes, what have I gotten myself into? I am terible about reading everything I say I am going to...I am looking forward to rereading Wharton. I have been in the mood for somethin by her for a while now.
Max--I am always impressed by people who can read books in foreign languages. It would be nice to read the book as it was originally written!!
Carl--My table is pretty sturdy thankfully. It needs to be cleaned off though. I am going to work hard to keep it all under control...Ha.
Ex Libris--Even though the Dumas is a fairly lengthy read I have a feeling it will go pretty fast. I hope so anyway. I will have to watch the Scarlet Pimpernel. I have a vague recollection of it--I think it is one I saw a really long time ago.


For all of you Scarlet Pimpernel fans, the BBC produced a short series that aired on A&E a few years ago. It starred Richard E. Grant as the Scarlet Pimpernel. Haven't seen them in awhile, but I remember really liking Grant in the role and there were some great stories. You might want to check them out after you've read the book.

I loved The Scarlet Pimpernel, and seem to recall another BBC? production starring the then, gorgeous Anthony Andrews (who was in Brideshead Revisited) as the Pimpernel.
I haven't heard of that particular Elizabeth Gaskell. Must investigate.
Good luck with the challenge. It is so much fun knowing other people around the world are all doing a similar thing!


Great choice on Dumas!! My fav of his is Count of Monte Criso... there are two other from the challenge doing the same~!

Thanks composing! The reason for the report is always to document your lifetime and deliver your own own thoughts. Some notions are usually special with me but definitely distinctive. That which you very long for to offer for the fashionable society, I believe I've already been identified that. So long as many of us do effectively and imagine that.
