Take On a Classic Novel You Haven't Read Yet

Stef McDonald


Let's face it: Reading 140-character tweets is not enough to keep your mind engaged. And all that time spent staring at a computer or TV screen? Maybe you're a regular reader of contemporary fiction and don't need the nudge to read more. But reading a classic puts you in the company of millions across generations and time zones who have enjoyed the words on those pages. Maybe it's "Moby Dick" or "Pride and Prejudice"—just crack open a classic you never got around to reading.

    Great Expectations is the book I want to read, the book I love is North and South, Gaskell.

    I made a whole list of classic books that I wanted to get through that I thought by now I should have read, the first was Wuthering Heights. I loved it and was pretty surprised by that.

      Wuthering Heights is a great book! :)

    Why are you using quotation marks for book titles? They're supposed to be italicized...

      Love it—refreshing to see a book club take on a classic.

    Since vampires are all the rage, I highly recommend you take it back to the old school and crack open Bram Stoker's Dracula. I've read it once a month since I was 16-years-old, which is undoubtedly a little ridiculous. But, it is such a great book with plenty of relevant-to-today social commentary simmering throughout. Also, where else are you going to read lines like, "I love the shade and the shadow, and would be alone with my thoughts when I may"?

      So funny—I read "Dracula" for the first time a few years ago. So good! I read it in October and decided to pick up other spooky classics to read around Halloween. "Frankenstein" and "The Picture of Dorian Gray" are others I'd recommend.
