Murder on the Orient Express (Hercule Poirot Mysteries)
4.  Murder on the Orient Express (Hercule Poirot Mysteries) by Agatha Christie
The list author says:
  "When I lived in Mexico City, I used to hunt more Agatha Christies every time I went to the airport or into the parts of town where English novels could be found. Great reading when you live and work in another language."

Night and Day
5.  Night and Day by Virginia Woolf
The list author says:
  "I love this book. Maybe I was afraid of Virginia Woolf for too many years. Maybe what makes reviewers say this novel is unlike her other books is why I like it. But the language, the characters, the symbols and imagery are perfect. I relate to the tension between being alone and separate and being with other people."
$32.63   Used & New from: $28.63
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (244 customer reviews)

A Distant Mirror:  The Calamitous 14th Century
6.  A Distant Mirror: The Calamitous 14th Century by Barbara Wertheim Tuchman
The list author says:
  "I enjoy all of Barbara Tuchman's books (except The First Salute) and used to buy them as they were published. This is my favorite. I also recommend The Proud Tower, The March of Folly, and The Guns of August."

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (282 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Ursula, Under
7.  Ursula, Under by Ingrid Hill
The list author says:
  "Modern fiction at its best. I personally love the idea that all our ancestors, who are unknown to us, still make us who we are. Wonderful style, great narrative devices, imagery and characters. And detailed historical and geographical setting is what it's really about."
$14.28   Used & New from: $0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (35 customer reviews)

Frederica (Regency Romances)
8.  Frederica (Regency Romances) by Georgette Heyer
The list author says:
  "Read anything by Georgette Heyer. No, that's not right. Skip the mysteries, but any of her historical fiction or romances are great. She combines wonderful language, period slang, comedy and humor and irony."
$11.42   Used & New from: $2.34
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (196 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Jane Eyre
9.  Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
The list author says:
  "The most recent time I read this, I was struck by Bronte's Christian point of view and her ability to see the Gospel while simultaneously attacking "traditional" Christian hypocrisy."
$8.99   Used & New from: $0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3,926 customer reviews)

Their Eyes Were Watching God
10.  Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
The list author says:

$12.39   Used & New from: $1.25
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,028 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

The Time Traveler's Wife
11.  The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
The list author says:
  "When someone asks for my opinion, I will say they shouldn't make movies from great books. This was wonderfully conceived, detailed and constructed. The upcoming movie will have to fail at capturing so much."
Used & New from: $0.01
