    Good idea to re-read The Great Gatsby. I like your list though it is really quite differnet from my.

    I really need to get myself a version of Catch-22 that I can read. I accidentally got one with print too small, and I knew it would adversely affect my reading enjoyment.

    good books! but A Room with A View is not a 19th Century book, so you still have one category left on your challenge, even though I know it’s now 4 years later.
