Slow Reading Movement

The Slow Books concept is an idea to embrace.  Do if for your mind.  Read long, slow, complicated stories heavy with history, allusion, imagery and human emotion.

I learned about the slow reading movement on a site that discussed Margaret Olley, the painter whose work I viewed during a recent sojourn in Australia.

Suggestions for books that qualify as slow reads?

North and South

Vanity Fair

Middlemarch

The Red and the Black

The Abyss
