English Vocabulary

Old book and old fashioned english

I'm an old books collector and enjoy to read classical english.
Dickens, George Eliot, Antony Trollop are some of my favourite author. Some of less famous ones as Flora Thomson or Mary Russel Mitford are also fascinating writters.
Are you interested in discussing their subjects, their characters but also their style and their vocabulary ?
