Reading the Classics

~~How long has it been since you read the classic novels? When I got my Kindle, I realized that there are a lot of old classics available for free. I know, I know, you're going to say that that's what libraries are for. But my local library has a really strong air freshener and I'm allergic to it. I've returned many books after only a few pages because of it. I'm happy to use the Kindle for my catch up reading.

~~Here's a list of some I've read lately:
  • Ramona by Helen Hunt Jackson (The first adult novel I read way back when I was 11.)
  • Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
  • The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas the elder
~~I have the following on my Kindle waiting for me to read them:
  • The Three Musketeers by Alexander Dumas the younger
  • Anna Kaenina by Leo Tolstoy
  • Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
  • Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin
  • Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott
~~Do you have some classics you'd like to read? What are they? Or do you find the older, slower starts hard to get into?
