As you know, I have always loved books and I have always been an avid reader. However, my choice in books has not always been stellar. The content and subject area of my book choices have not always been appropriate nor great literary accomplishments. The majority of my book selections were for entertainment and enjoyment purposes. Reading for entertainment and enjoyment is of course the point
Looking back, I wish I had taken the time to read more of the classic literature books. Now that I have grown and matured in my reading preferences, I feel like I missed out on a lot of amazing pieces of literature.
I found this list of 99 Classic Books Reading Challenge. Out of those 99, I have only completed 10 and started 2 of them that I ended up putting down to never finish. That’s only about 10%. Not a very great percentage rate. Plus, there are a lot more books that are considered Must-Read Classic books that are not included on this list that I have yet to read as well.
What are your favorite Classic Literary Books? What books would you consider to be on the Must-Read Classic Books list that I should add to my never-ending stack of books?
There are just so many amazing books, both classic and modern, that deserve to be on every stack. WHY do I have to be an adult with responsibilities?!? Why can’t I just sit on a beach or in a comfy chair by a warm fire all day and read?!?
At least now, I can use the excuse that I am reading with my kids to get book time and work on some of those classics. 🙂
