  1. Swift cracks me up. I bet that one is going to be interestingly entertaining.
    That’s one Woolf I’ve not read.
    And I bet Twelve Years a Slave will be an excellent read. I loved the movie. Amazing story!

  2. I’m familiar with several of these authors, but not these works. I expect you’ll find them interesting. I wish I had read A Portrait of the Artist before Ulysses. I think I would have appreciated Ulysses more. Enjoy!

  3. I enjoyed Exupery’s Night Flight very much. Seemed like I was on the plane with him. His reflection on the universe is superb; deep and beautiful.

    Joyce’s A Portrait has always been dreadful to me. I have wanted to order a copy many times, but always cancelled at the last time. Look forward to reading your review.

    Proust,,, I have given up with him. Swann’s Way was nightmare; it was mostly tedious and after finishing it (though skipping many pages), I still didn’t get what he wanted to tell me. Anyway, good luck to you 🙂
