The Nikki Wade Reading List

Have you already read everything on this site?  And every piece of Helen-Nikki fanfic you can get your hands on?  Well, then, you're ready for the biggest challenge of them all.  It's the Nikki Wade Reading List!  Just because Nikki had nothing to do all day and you're working full time doesn't mean you can't match her voracious literary consumption.  To make it easy we've provided a list of every book Nikki read.  Some are more meaningful and symbolic than others (starting with Romeo and Juliet and Middlemarch, of course), but for a true fan completion is the goal, nothing less.  So grab a cuppa, set up your comfy reading chair and find a cozy blanket—this is going to be a long ride.

PS We're not brainlessly endorsing Amazon: please support your local independent bookstore if there are any left in your town.
