I was never really into classics, and there were some that I had to read for school. But this year I would like to read more of them, it is one of my goals for the year. Below is the list of classics that I am planning on reading this year, some of them are the Barnes and Noble Classics Editions.
Barnes and Noble Classics Editions:
Moby Dick by Herman Melville
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
The House of Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
The Illiad and the Odyssey by Homer
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Some of these books are intimidating, either because of their size or they way the are written. The largest book I’ve ever read is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, War and Peace is 1,156 pages. After I read The Argonautica, which was difficult for me to get through due to the way it was written, I saw that the Illiad and the Odyssey was written the same way and I’m intimidated to read it. It took me about a week to read the Argonautica, which is only 155 pages and the edition of The Illiad and the Odyssey I have is 731 pages, I’m curious to see how long it will take me read it.
I love the classics. I have a lot of books by Dickens and Jane Austen. You just can’t go wrong with Pride and Prejudice. Have you seen the movie adapted from the book?
No I haven’t seen the movie, I didn’t even know there was a movie adaptation.
