More Books on the shelves

Can you stand just one more Booklist?

I finally went through and wrote down the books we currently have in the living room bookshelves, that we inherited when Father's mom passed away several years ago. We still have a couple plastic tubs full of books out in the garage but we just don't have room in the house.

There are 6 Treasury of World Masterpiece books bought in 1983 from B.Dalton. I found a receipt in one of the books. They hold the complete and unabridged stories of

1) Jane Austen - Pride and Prejudice, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion, Emma
2) Charles Dickens - Oliver Twist, Great Expections, A Tale of Two Cities

5) Oscar Wilde - The complete collection including Picture of Dorian Gray
