  1. You’ve inspired me. I might do the same! Lovely as an intro to who this blogger is. Also, classics much?? 😉 I have a bad relationship with Flaubert since I had to read ‘Madame Bovary’ a few times for studies and found it boring. A few of the others I have read and like, particularly the Russians.
