I've been an avid reader since I was young. I was an English major in college. I'm one of those people that always has to be reading something, even if it's the back of the cereal box at breakfast... which is why I feel especially guilty about the fact that there are some--too many--classic books that I just haven't read.
Ulysses? Nope. Anna Karenina? Sorry, Tolstoy. Middlemarch? Ooh, look! Over there! (as I slink away...)
I'm making it a goal to read at least one classic novel a month, starting now. What classics are must-reads? Which should never have survived the test of time? Are there any "great books" that you feel a little bad not having read?
