I'm amazed that I've actually read quite a few of your list.

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

Excellent idea for a list! I've read them all except for Alexandria Quartet (and that one I have not even heard about!) Thank you very much!

I loved One Hundred Years of Solitude!

Angela said...

Great choices! I love the classics.

So I generally feel like an expert on the classics, and I am extra excited to get to see one I didn't know! The Alexandria Quartet? Like Deb, I've read all the others. It's always exciting to discovery new books and doubly so when they are classics! Thanks for this list and for stopping by our blog too!

Great list, I've read a number of them (One Hundred Years of Solitude, Brave New World, Catch-22 and The Bell Jar as well as Forster's other works--haven't gotten around to A Passage to India yet though) and enjoyed them =)

Thanks for dropping by my blog earlier this week!
