  1. That’s quite a list. Although I’m generally more of a fan of newer types of books (I read a lot of Science Fiction and Fantasy), I do check out the classics from time to time, and I’m sure I’ll get to some of those books. Best of luck in getting through your list.

      I love fantasy too!
      Once I got into the classics, I think I became addicted to them. 🙂 I find their freshness and timelessness irresistable.
      And thank you!

  2. Jane Austen’s Persuasion is a great book…I like it only 2nd to Pride and Prejudice. The Silmarillion is also very interesting, though it’s not really a novel. The Phantom of the Opera is also very good.

    • Elestyn

      Cool! I’ve read some of Jane Austen’s and Tolkien’s other books and they’re just amazing! And I love the PotO movie and I’m really looking forward to reading the book!

  3. #4 The book was so much better than the movie.

    • Elestyn

      yeah, I’ve heard the book is really good! It’s too bad though that the movie doesn’t live up to the book. Can’t wait to read it!

    Wow, this is a great list. I have read 3 of these and I guess I should put more on my list as well.
