Top Ten Tuesday ~ Ten Books For Readers Who Like Classics

"Top Ten Tuesday" is an original feature/weekly meme created on the blog "The Broke and the Bookish". This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at "The Broke and the Bookish". Since I am just as fond of them as they are, I jump at the chance to share my lists with them! Have a look at their page, there are lots of other bloggers who share their lists here.

March 10: Top Ten Tuesday ~ Ten Books For Readers Who Like Classics 

I had no problem to find the genre of which I would like to present my top ten favourites. However, as usual, I did have a problem finding ten. It's eleven, as so often. And no, I could not possibly leave one of the out. I had to leave out so many others. A lot of those have written more than just one fantastic book and I have a few of my favourite authors among them. For some of them, there is a link to all their novel, just click on their name

  1. Those are all great ones! I need to read more Russian authors!

    1. Thank you, Lois,

      I also loved your Jane Austen list and have commented on there. I always think the same, I really need to read more Russian authors, I love them. But - so many books, so little time.

      Talk to you again soon, happy reading,
