The Classics

February 4th, 2015

I enjoy reading The Classics, though recently I’ve been reading quick read paperbacks. That didn’t last too long until I felt the need to revisit a few books written long ago. I’m working on rereading some that I haven’t read in a long time and a few that I have somehow missed reading in my lifetime. It is at times hard to remember what one read in high school and college.

I just finished Pride and Prejudice and Emma by Jane Austen. I’m currently reading Jane Eyre, next on the list will probably be My Antonia, which I haven’t read. Perhaps I’ll crack open my Hemingway book next as I love his collection of short stories. Something by John Steinbeck is also on my list, he’s my all-time favorite author and I have been collecting copies of his books for a while. It’s been a while since I’ve read Tortilla Flat and Cannery Row, which are both fantastic.

I’ve looked up lists of classics to see which ones I should add to my list, but figured it was best to ask you.

So….what are your favorite classics?
