Last week’s Booking through Thursday post asked what we’d do with an unexpected windfall. In my post, I mentioned I was expecting a pretty sizeable tax return, and I talked about buying a new computer, as well as some books. Well, that tax return came today, and it was significantly larger than expected. So, that means it’s time to buy some books!

But I need some advice on which books to pick. I am therefore asking you, my fellow book bloggers and book lovers, to recommend some books to me. My taste tends to run toward literary fiction and classic literature. If you’re curious about things I already own or have read, you can check my Library Thing account, as well as my reviews page here.

So, what do you think? Am I missing a classic that I just have to read? Are there new, can’t-miss books that are worth the buzz? Leave a comment and let me know!
