Looking forward to meeting other readers and writers in the area. I'm originally from North Carolina and moved back to the Tar Heel state a few years ago after 22 years in Virginia.
In college I changed my major to English because I enjoyed reading the classics more than textbooks. I still have many favorites from among American and English classics and remember many scenes and lines from them. There are many more of the classics I still want to read, and I would enjoy discussing them with others.
Not as much as I'd like! Trying to be selective, and the reading selections for this group look especially interesting.
I can't think of any books (other than some I had to read when I was earning a Master of Divinity a few years ago), but there were several short stories I wished I'd never read, even though they're classics.
There are a lot of the classics I want to read - so many that I haven't thought about prioritizing them, but some may show up in the reading list for this group.
