I don’t know why, but in the past I have always been hesitant about reading “The Classics”. I never found them interesting and would often write them off as irrelevant. It was not until Graduate school that I truly began to delve into them and understand there importance and value. While I have read some of the classics, there are still many that I have yet to get to. For the next 3-6 months I am challenging myself to read 1 classic a week. These are such great stories and I feel as if I am missing out, especially when they are referenced in other novels or discussed. There is much in classic novels that can teach us about the world of the authors and even about our current society. I am excited to start. Now I just have to decide which one to pick up first.
How do you feel about classic novels? Do you have any favorites or recommendations?
