  1. You have some great books listed; there is lots of good reading ahead of you. But, I couldn’t help but notice that Anna Karenina is on all lists. It is one of my favorite books & I recommend it to many.

    Glad I happened upon your blog today. I’ll be back.

    • Thanks for the comment!

      It is on all three lists – I chose it for the first challenge I discovered and realized that it actually worked for all three and thankfully the hosts of each of the challenges allows the books to count for multiple challenges :-D
