Love your list. I met Alex Haley a long time ago. Amazing man. I didn't think of Scarlet Letter--good choice.

Thanks for stopping by! You've got some great choices-- Scarlet Letter definitely made me think about guilt and shame. I really want to read a few of the others but haven't gotten to it yet!
