  1. Good luck with your spin on Monday. I love the spins - it's a great way to catch up with lots of new bloggers too :-)

  2. We share The Way We Live Now, An American Tragedy, and Crime and Punishment... different numbers though. Good luck on Monday!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! Maybe we'll end up with the same book. ;)

  3. Arsenic and Old Lace is a book! That's cool! I really want to see the movie! Good luck with your spin!

  4. Great list! I love Rebecca and read a collection of short stories by du Maurier that was amazing. Apparently she wrote the story that inspired Hitchcock's The Birds. I had no idea Arsenic and Old Lace was a book. I will have to add that to my wishlist. The movie is truly Cary Grant at his comic best.

    1. I didn't realize Arsenic and Old Lace was a book until recently myself. It is one of my favorite movies and I agree... Cary Grant at his comic best. :)

  5. I really like your list! War and Peace was an excellent novel but I can understand dreading the length of it. I've never been fond of Hemingway but I just read The Old Man and the Sea and loved it so I'm open to reading more of his works. Oh fun! ….. Pygmalion! I'd like to read this too at some point.

    I hope you have a great spin, Lois, and get the book that you'd like!

    1. I think I will enjoy War and Peace but the length does intimidate me a little. However, if I've read Dickens I figure I can read War and Peace. :)

  6. Ooohh... some very long books on the list! Good luck :)
