Jane Eyre – Charlotte Brontë

This is yet another one that shows up on several lists and posts. I read it because it had been referenced so many times in many settings – books, movies, tv shows, everyday conversation. I enjoyed the book a lot, and now I understand the references. It showing up on so many lists makes it even more enjoyable, since I can check it off the lists.
