What's your history with the classics so far?

I was an English Literature major, so I've hit a lot of them, but not as many as I should have.

How much time do you have for reading or meetups?

I read pretty much all the time, but have a massive to-read list already. If I can fit a title in, I'll happily read it, and will make an effort to get to the meetup.

Is there anything a school or college teacher made you swear you'd never read again?

I don't think so! My teachers were all broadly-read bookworms and approved of my bibliophilia.

Is there anything you've been meaning to read but haven't quite got around to?

Um, is there? Dracula, all the Shakespeare histories, poetry in any depth, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, the Sherlock Holmes mysteries, Moby-Dick (maybe), most of Faulkner, more of Hemingway, more of Edith Wharton (loved The Age of Innocence), some Kafka besides The Metamorphosis, Anna Karenina, The Heart of Darkness, more Poe (though I've read a lot), The Canterbury Tales (never got through them), The Grapes of Wrath, pretty much anything by Dickens, The Three Musketeers (and other Dumas), The Count of Monte Cristo, Hawthorne beyond The Scarlet Letter, and probably a million others that I can't think of right now.

Introduction

I'm a big nerd and love to read. There are a lot of classics on my to-read list that I've been meaning to get to for years, so this group should be really helpful. :)
