Classics: more secondary list additions!

I am a book magpie.  New list additions:

  • Francis Bacon:  The Essays
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson:  Essays and Lectures
  • Alexander Hamilton:  The Federalist Papers
  • Herodotus:  The Histories
  • Margery Kempe:  The Book of Margery Kempe
  • The Lais of Marie de France
  • Marguerite de Navarre:  The Heptameron
  • Samuel Pepys:  The Diary of Samuel Pepys
  • Plato:  The Republic
  • Henry David Thoreau:  Collected Essays and Poems
  • Mary Wollstonecraft:  A Vindication of the Rights of Woman

Ok.  I am now off to read.  I’d like to make a significant dent into my Thomas Hardy book today. ..


It’s much later in the day.  Actually, we’ll call it evening as the sun is due to set any moment now.  And, yet again, I must add more.

Curse you, GoodReads, for being so dastardly!  The ease of finding MORE books is too much temptation.  See what you have yet again done (and I won’t alphabetize these):

  • François Rabelais:  Gargantua and Pantagruel
  • Sir Arthur Conan Doyle:  The Lost World
  • Geoffrey Chaucer:  Troilus and Criseyde
  • John Ford:  ‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore and Other Plays
  • Emmuska Orczy:  The Scarlet Pimpernel
  • Charles Dickens:  Little Dorrit, Our Mutual Friend, Barnaby Rudge
  • Fanny Burney:  Camilla, Evelina
  • Mary Elizabeth Braddon:  Lady Audley’s Secret
  • Charlotte Bronte:  The Professor, Shirley
  • H. Rider Haggard:  King Solomon’s Mines
  • Rafael Sabatini:  Scaramouche

Geez.  I’m doomed.
