This puppy has been on my account since...(*serious face of shame*) August 13, 2013; but its 614 pages probably scared me.  It was first published in 1882.

That reminds me, I need to buy some more coffee....


  1. Sounds like a fun challenge! Wishing you the best of luck with it! I always love when I get books off my TBR list that have been there for ages. :)

    Happy 2017!

    1. Well, I should be on top of the world this year then, Jess, cause I have a BUNCH of them! *lol*

    Happy 2017!

  3. Thanks, Wren, I am eager to 'spread my wings'. :)
