Although I planned on reading the book anyway, this one wasn't my original planned book for this challenge. While I don't think it was quite as great as many people do, it was a Booker Prize winner and a lot of people consider it to be a classic book.

Hi: In honor of Edith Wharton's 150th birthday, I read my first novel of hers - The Mother's Recompense. It was wonderful, can't wait to read more. Happy reading, Ruby

I borrowed this book from a friend for a quick read and after the first few pages decided to make it my choice for the 20th Century Classic. The story is written wonderfully and the author presents a strong meaningful message through a simple story.

I think I mentioned this before, but I love your categories and the way you have the link pages set-up. Beautifully organized. It's so easy to look at the other links in each category for ideas on what to read next.
Thanks a bunch

Sarah, I've posted a link to the Challenge, The Enemy Within, by Steve Jacobs, for the 20th Century Category. (This happens to be my second) I'm sorry, but I first posted a wrong link and I had to re post the second time to link the correct one. Deeply sorry for the inconvenience.

I read A Farewell To Arms by Ernest Hemingway for this challenge.
Thank you.

I was going to read Lonesome Dove for my 20th Century choice, but it never seems to catch my eye. So I decided to count Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy as my choice.

I read "Catch-22" by Joseph Heller, a classic that I wasn't required to read in high school, unfortunately! I felt left out, so this was the perfect book to read for this section!

I read another one that's been on my shelf forever! This is a great challenge!

Woops! I thought I put this up already but I didn't. I read the Great Gatsby finally. Worth it. Now I need to watch the movie! So excited.

I read The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton. It was a great book! Now I have to see the movie.
