2008 Classic novels list

This is a project I've had in mind for a while. Read one classic novel a month _ regardless of genre _ for a year. So this is the year.
And these are the books:
January: Rebecca by Daphne duMaurier

Februray: Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
March: The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens
April: Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
May: 1984 by George Orwell
June: The Once and Future King by T H White
July: Hawaii by James Michener
August: The Portrait of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
September: A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway
October: The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte
November: Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
December: Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein

Apart from Love in the Time of Cholera, which I read years ago, I haven't read any of these books. Should be fun!

What a great year!
Rebecca, Sense and Sensibility, 1984, Picture of Dorian Gray, Tenant of Wildfell Hall - all these are on my all-time-favourites list. I actually preferred Anne Bronte's Agnes Grey, though, so if you get time...!
