    1. I know….I did decide to mix up the list a bit with some titles that are not on my original list. Only 12 of these books are “classics” in any sense of the word. But it’s summer and I don’t like playing by the rules most of the time. The poets listed are not necessarily classics, although they may become so. Do you think I should change up the list? I have resisted reading Anne Perry for years but I have an excellent friend who is begging me to read her, which is why she’s on the list.
      Number 20 is also not a “classic” but it might become one. Laurie Colwin is a “classic” in my opinion, and I would like to reread her. R.C. Hutchinson is a very neglected classic.

      Thank you for looking at my list.
