When the wealthy and very eligible bachelor Charles Bingley purchases an estate in the Bennets’ small town, he and the beautiful Jane immediately fall in love.

But Bingley’s arrogant friend Darcy just as quickly alienates Lizzy when she overhears him speaking dismissively of her.

These first impressions have lasting repercussions for Jane, Elizabeth, and their whole family.

Rich in wit and wisdom, humor and humanity, “Pride and Prejudice” takes a probing, entertaining look at the nature of love, money, and power in Georgian England.

To Kill a Mockingbird2. To Kill a Mockingbird

“Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit ’em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.”

A lawyer’s advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee’s classic novel–a black man charged with the rape of a white girl.

Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with rich humor and unswerving honesty the irrationality of adult attitudes toward race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s.

The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence, and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina and quiet heroism of one man’s struggle for justice–but the weight of history will only tolerate so much.

One of the best-loved classics of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has earned many dis-tinctions since its original publication in 1960.

It has won the Pulitzer Prize, been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, and been made into an enormously popular movie.

It was also named the best novel of the twentieth century by librarians across the country (Library Journal).

Jane Eyre1. Jane Eyre

Charlotte Bronte’s most beloved novel describes the passionate love between the courageous orphan Jane Eyre and the brilliant, brooding, and domineering Rochester.

But after she falls in love with her sardonic employer, her discovery of his terrible secret forces her to make a heart-wrenching choice.

Ever since its publication in 1847, “Jane Eyre “has enthralled every kind of reader, from the most critical and cultivated to the youngest and most unabashedly romantic.

It lives as one of the great triumphs of storytelling and as a moving and unforgettable portrayal of a woman’s quest for self-respect.
