- This is living list. Don't be surprised if it changes! My original post is here. I can only guess at how many times I'll change it.

** I've decided to add "questionable" classics down here.  I don't  know if they count, but I'll submit the reviews to the Classics Club anyway.  I'd like to hear your opinions, so comment here or on the original reviews, which are linked.
