What Is Your Favorite Classic?

Every once in a while it is nice to revisit one of the classics. The last classic we read was Pride and Prejudice. Although some felt it was a little like going back to school, most felt it was well worth the effort. I for one loved the book, but I am a Austen fan!

Do you have a favorite classic? We need your help! Which classic should we read this year?

  3. The Good Earth by Pearl S Buck is one of my favorite all time books. Don’t know if it is considered a classic by the masses but, I certainly consider it one!

  4. It’s been so long since I’ve read a classic, but right up there is The Good Earth and To Kill a Mockingbird.

  5. To Kill a Mockingbird is my favorite classic. Thinking about it makes me want to reread it again!

    • Hi Sue! Welcome! It looks like To Kill a Mockingbird is a lot of people’s favorite and It would be an excellent book choice for our book club! If we read it this year, I hope you will “reread it” along with us!

  6. I returned to Catcher In the Rye after several decades. Reading it as an adult was a much different experience than reading it as a teenager. I told my mother and her book club to read it for their “classic” selection. Reading it as a mother and grandmother makes it so much more of a heart wrenching, compelling story.

    • Hi CVB! What a wonderful idea. Perhaps we could invite our mothers and or daughters to read along with us. Catcher in the Rye is another great choice and one I have not read for a very long time. Thanks for your visit. Please come again!
