I hope you do all of the novels. I could clear off a couple of shelves.
That's a wonderful quote, one that I wasn't aware of. Thank you.
I just finished all six (6) Palliser novels and will post them tomorrow morning. I'll do all the Trollope I can find. I have 7 more in a folder that I'll work on later this week.
Right now, I'm going to bed!
