  1. This looks fun, Ana. I think I'm going to do the same in my blog. There's many there I wish I had the time to read...*sigh* :)

  2. That's what I felt too, looking at some of these titles reminded me of many I want to read.

    You do it too and maybe we can swap recommendations on what you read that I didn't and vice versa :-)

  3. I already posted the list at my blog and finally I noticed I read quite a few. I saw you read The Brothers Karamazov. Did you like it? I have it on my shelf but never read it... Shame on me!:)

  4. I must confess that I read it so long ago I don't really remember anymore. I guess besides reading the ones I'm missing I should reread a couple...
