Erinm31's Literary Quest

Classics, literary fiction and nonfiction from around the world plus some fantasy and science fiction that I want to read, reread, or have read in the past few years. Books are listed in approximately chronological order, with books in a series kept together.
It started slowly with a desire to read classic science fiction and fantasy, then grew to include some of those classics I'd always wished I'd read, then expanded still further to encompass books old and new around the world. This is from my personal TBR list to help me track my progress — books I am particularly interested in and/or feel I simply must read to ever be "well-read."
