Read Any Classics Lately?

So my writing group has been discussing classics lately, what everyone liked, what they plan to read, etc. Rachelle linked to a list of 100 classics she posted on her blog, I'm not sure where she got it, but she put a star by the ones she had read. When I looked at the list I was pleased to see I had read more than I thought, though admittedly my high school and college teachers are responsible for most of that. Apparently I still have a long list ahead of me, and there were a few I couldn't remember if I read for a class or not--so I didn't count them.

Here's my list:

I've read twelve of them, but I've seen the movie adaptations of many of the others. I think that ought to count for something, because that would make me at least familiar with the basic storyline, right? Right??

I love this list! I made one of these myself a few years ago so I could keep track of my reading. I've read most of these, but some I need to add to my own list. I wish our book club would do classics. Not many want to put in the time and effort a really great classic takes.
