Unless someone has a strong opinion - and offers it - I've finally made a book choice. After reading a little into each book, I've decided to pick The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. I'm still on my southern reading kick, and I have never read this one. I'm about 100 pages into the Goudge book, and am thoroughly enjoying it, but it's not readily available at other libraries, and I don't know that it's a book that would stand up to repeated rereadings. My Antonia was one of my favorite books in high school, and it's staying on my bedside table to reread, but I've had the McCullers a long time without reading it, so I either need to read it or pass it on. Plus it should read quickly!
