vanity fair.

goal #3 for 2011:
read [at least] five classic novels.

classic novel count as of february 18, 2011:
one and a half.
i finished my first novel last week and right now i'm about halfway through my second which is Vanity Fair by William Thackeray [i started them both around the same time, so no, i'm not a speed reader. unfortunately!]. i have to admit....i actually kind of hated Vanity Fair when i first started it. especially because i was secretly comparing it to Jane Eyre [aka the best book ever written!], but i'm slowly coming around on this book and i've actually been getting a big kick out of how societies and human nature haven't changed much over the centuries since this book was written.

i'd rather finish it than keep reading it though, so hopefully i'll be done by the end of february. mostly so i can finally let myself watch the movie [the one with reese witherspoon] and get it off our netflix queue! and while i'm on the subject of books and movies.....did you know they're making a new Jane Eyre movie???? sooooo excited for march 11th!

next book is Les Miserables by Victor Hugo and i think i should probably also read Price & Prejudice by Jane Austen sometime soon. any other suggestions????
