Thanks to everyone for the suggestions in this post about how to get the ball rolling in our inaugural Anti-Room Classics bookclub.  As much as we’d love to meet the delightful Rosie in person, it seems like it suits most folk to meet up online. As today is the 8th of September, why don’t we say eight weeks from today, Monday November 3rd?

As per everyone’s suggestions, here’s the shortlist. Cast your vote and whichever gets the most, we’ll go for.

* North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell

* Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

* Lady Audley’s Secret by Mary Braddon

* The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins

* Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys

* Something by Jane Austen to make up for the pretty dull Lost in Austen on UTV
