Classics to Read

There have many times where I’ll be watching a movie and there is a reference to a book I’ve never read.  This got me thinking about all of the books thought of as classics that I’ve never taken the time to read.  I borrowed some lists from my fellow bloggers and made a list of books I want to read.  As I read from my list I’ll mark them off.  The ones that I’m working on well appear in red.

Yes, I know not all of them should be on the “classics” list but this is what google presented and I just don’t feel like arguing details at the moment.

If you have any suggestions as to any others to add let me know!
