The 1001: 1810s - 1840s

I've read good chunks of some of these, like Jane Eyre, but for some reason or another I never finished them so I'm not including them as read (read titles are in italics). In addition to DailyLit and ClassicReader, I've also been introduced to The Literature Network. I always look for a book's availability on DailyLit first and then ClassicReader, I'll look for a piece on The Literature Network last (that site seems to have the smallest selection). Also, I kind of totally, misunderstood the point of the 1001. While I moaned about the lack of such heavyweights as Shakespeare on the list, I discovered that the list is meant to track the development of the novel. While I don't completely agree with this logic, I can understand why there are those parameters...
