  • My Antonia, by Willa Cather.  Enjoy it as a tale of female pioneers, or as a pseudoautobiographical, crypyolesbian novel.
  • The Hunting of the Snark, by Lewis Carroll.  I’m assuming you have read Alice in Wonderland, but have you read Carroll’s other great work of nonsense?
  • Departmental Ditties and Barrack Room Ballads, by Rudyard Kipling.  Everybody enjoys a good Kipling poem, don’t they?  Do you know about Michael Longcor’s Norman & Saxon?  It’s a collection of Kipling poems set to music.
  • Anne of Green Gables, by L. M. Montgomerey.  If you don’t already love the spunky, imaginative, redheaded orphan, you’ve missed an important part of your teen girlhood.  You can catch up now.
  • Uncle Tom’s Cabin, by Harriet Beecher Stowe.  Everyone learned in history class about the role this sentimental melodrama played in the Civil War, but have you actually read it?  You might be surprised at how well it reads.  You can’t start a war with a boring book, in general.
