Borrowing pdurrant's excellent thread idea :) Choose only public domain books (i.e. available here or at Project Gutenberg or Manybooks or some such site) for this one. The rules, from pdurrant's original thread:

Here's a thread for another list of books. I'm looking for books that you really enjoyed reading - books that you remember well, and would be happy to re-read.

But to make creating the list a bit more intersting: in alphabetical order by title*, one book per post, each following on from the last post. I'll list the titles here as people add them:

*"A" and "The" should be ignored. Also "Le" and all other non-English equivalents.

I'll start us off with A-B-C

A: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

B: Black Beauty by Anna Sewell

C: A Christmas Carrol by Charles Dickens

D: Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes

E: Emma by Jane Austen

F: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

G: Goodbye, Mr Chips by James Hilton

H: The House on the Borderland by William Hope Hodgson

I: Ivanhoe by Walter Scott

J: The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling

K: The Kama Sutra

L: Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

M: Middlemarch by George Eliot
