  1. I finally picked up The Small House at Allington back in ?March ?April – read about the first 4 chapters and then got distracted. I can’t figure out what it is about the Barchester Chronicles. I enjoy them once I’m in to them, but it is hard work for me to take the time to get in to them.
    You’ve got a lot of good titles on this list! Happy reading!
