Having read the top ten best selling novels of 1917, I've decided to start reading Jerusalem by the Swedish writer Selma Lagerlöf. In book #6 on the list, Christine (written by Elizabeth von Arnim and presented under her anonymous pen-name Alice Cholmondeley) the heroine mentions to her mother, in a letter, that her fiancé had given her a copy of Lagerlöf's novel. The character, Christine spoke highly of the novel, and I wanted to see what von Armin found so enjoyable as to make mention of it.

I haven't gotten so far along into the novel, but I'm finding it an enjoyable read - I've already begun looking into what other works by Lagerlöf I might download and read in the near future.

Jerusalem can be found at Project Gutenberg.
