With all seriousness, are we supposed to buy a copy of every set text? Really? Cripes.

I feel your pain! They aren't exactly the cheapest books The Norton Anthology is £35! But to be fair, it is a huge book.

Cripes...

Also, do we have to buy the exact edition that they specify? No doubt they'll be using the most expensive editions.

The Norton Anthology of Poetry: I searched all the options and there weren't any below £35 new including postage! I haven't bought the other anthology yet though...

So, which books has everybody read? My preliminary reading hasn't been as extensive as I'd have liked... I've read Jane Eyre, Great Expectations, Dracula and Heaney's translation of Beowulf. However, seeing as there's still a while until we move in, I'll probably read one or two of the others when they arrive.
