A Personal Goal

I am a person of lists. They give me a feeling of control in my life, of intentionality in my decisions. I make lists for my grocery shopping, my every day to-do's, my personal finances, wish lists, and most recently I have decided to make a LIST OF THINGS I WANT TO DO BEFORE I DIE. (The inspiration for this list came from MightyGirl, check it out).

I won't disclose the contents my list at the moment, but I will say that one of the items on that list is: Read 100 Classic Novels.

So naturally, I made a sub-category list of classic books that I want to read. So far there are 63 books on this list and I am needing assistance to fill in the remaining 37. I am very interested to hear what your favourite classic novels are, and I'd love to add them to my reading list. Please comment!


  1. OK you may laugh at this, but I read every Ian Fleming novel (James Bond)and enjoyed each one. Probably not your style, but at least I commented :-)

  2. There are one or two of Fleming's that probably would be considered classics. In any case I read Casino Royale a number of years ago and enjoyed it as well.

  3. Anne of Green Gables should be on that list as well as Jayne Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, and The Lord of the Rings
