So, I’ve had the notion of reading Daniel Deronda by George Eliot in my head for a bit, but, failing to find it at the bookstore, picked up Silas Marner, also by George Eliot.  I’m proceeding apace through Silas Marner, and was intending to move on to Daniel Deronda, which my mother sent me in the mail, but another book may be inserting itself between them: The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton.

Given that these books place my current reading within a 60-year period from 1861 to 1920, are there any other things on the must-read list in there?  I’m readjusting to reading fiction, and finding it just the thing.
