    I like the idea of donating to the RED foundation. There are a few on this list that I still need to read. I always feel I should buy the entire series when they release 8 similarly designed books, but then I already own Wharton and Tolstoy so I don’t think I’d buy those.

    Thank you for reminding me about these, Stu – I knew there was something I was meant to do! I have selected The House of Mirth and Great Expectations as the ones I’d like most. I haven’t read the Wharton and I have to replace my dog eared copy of Great Expectations which I had from school… 🙂

    I love some of these (sigh). Especially the Emile Zola. Might treat myself to one but there’s absolutely no way I can buck up the extra cash for the whole set, charity or no charity.
