  1. I read Lovely Bones… thought it was really good. And Gone with the Wind many years ago… it’s awesome. And Pillars of the Earth… no words. And Water for Elephants – book is better than the movie… I couldn’t stand them beating the elephant. oops… hope I didn’t ruin it for you.

  2. I’ve read a few of those – if there’s a way to mail books to Italy you can have my copies 🙂 (My shelves are overflowing again – oops). I love the Once and Future King, Kavalier & Clay is wonderful, though it was maybe a little long? Let me know what you think. Devil in the White City is scary, but good. Anna Karenina I did not love, though book club read it and most people liked it. Gone with the Wind can be fun if you can get past, well, a lot. Rebecca may be the best one on your list 🙂
