Recently while going through and reorganizing my bookshelves, I realized I have many more of 'the classics' than I thought I did! I have made sure to pick up any I saw that I didn't think I had over a couple of years time, and have amassed a collection that I'm actually quite proud of. Most of them, I haven't read. I love the idea of reading the classics like Dracula and The Three Musketeers, but when it comes to just sitting down and reading them, they tend to be just so dry and while I'm a quick reader, I tend to be no good when it comes to dialect.
Of the few classics I read in high school, I really only enjoyed a few. Lord of the Flies, A Seperate Peace, and Ethan Frome. I loved Ethan Frome. I don't know why I identified with the book at the time, but it really was one of my most favorite reads.
I've decided that after I'm done with the Dark-Hunter series, I'm going to start a new challenge of reading one book of modern times, and then one of the classic classification. This way I can get my classics that I've always wanted to read in, but at the same time, I can break them up with books that I know I'll be interested in.
I have a question for my readers. What is your favorite classic? Why?
Have a great weekend everyone!
