favorite books, and why
Ok, I'm plowing through Buffy and books like nobody's business. I'm slowing down by reading really thick books like The Mill on the Floss, Bleak House, The Portrait of a Lady, etc. But I need something to look forward to when I'm done with my Victorians in a month or two (I'm also reading for work and some other lighter fiction).
Give me some recommendations of your favorite books and why you like them!
