AH… The Classics

This week during one of my frightfully boring moments at work, I searched online for classic books that I hear about all the time but have never read. This was sparked by someone making reference to Gone With The Wind in a conversation and me having no idea what they were talking about. So for about the fourth time in my life I went and got a library card… I seem to loose them alot. I checked out two books, Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens and Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. At the checkout the librarian said (in a very librarian voice), “Ah, the Classsics.” I giggled and told her I had a list of about 36 to read so I would be back. If anyone has any classics they think I should add to my list feel free to let me know.

    I knew before I even read the comment that it was going to be from Amy! She’s great at knowing all the good classic books. I just stick to the children’s books. So….when you finish your list of classics, let me know and I’ll provide you with a list of good children’s books! 🙂
