    Welcome to the challenge! You have a great list. I am trying to read some of the classics too! ~ Susan

    Love your list! I try to read a classic for every couple current fiction that I read.

    Wow! You have an amazing list full of excellent books! I keep promising myself I'll read the Illiad and the Oddessy but I never get there. I've read some of the others on your list and love them, however. I'm really interested to hear what you think of "Birth of Britain" because it interests me as well. Love the classics - have you joined the Classics 2009 Challenge?

    Wow, what a list. Good luck with the challenge. I have been meaning to try Phillipia Gregory for awhile now.
