Classic book you want to read but haven't yet

So many......

Best excuse for not reading a classic book

PBS or BBC did a great mini series of the book. (or, I read the Classic Comic of that book).


Hi, I am a painter and interior designer with degrees in Art History. Over the past decade I have not read Classic Literature as I had in the past ... I miss it and would enjoy sharing the pleasure with others.
