That's Why They Call Them The Classics

Ever since the summer after my senior year of high school I've had a list of books I feel like I should have read by now--classics, if you will, that everyone references and talks about. Though 'the list' is now several years old, I hadn't made much of a dent in it until recently. Sure, I'd occasionally check a book off the list--one or two books read during summer and winter vacations--but I never did manage to find the time to read for pleasure while school was in session. Now that I've been in the "real world" for just over a year, I've decided it's time to make some serious headway on the list. With the help of good reads, the kindle my Dad gave me because he couldn't figure out how to turn it on, and the Los Angeles Public Library, I'm determined to work my way through this (always growing) list of mine.
