Over on the Armchair BEA Blog the discussion on classic literature is going on all day with TONS of links to other bloggers hosting their discussion on the subject. People will be sharing their favorites, making recommendations, discussing why they love the classics, and so on. Remember, too, that adding to the discussion with comments of your own enters you in the BIG giveaway.
As for me, I will admit that while a big reader from a very young age, I wasn’t a huge fan of what is generally considered “the classics” in literature. Of course, that greatly depends on one’s personal definition of what is considered “classic literature” – that being a definition hotly debated! I’ll let you conduct a Google search on the subject and save the debating for the Armchair BEA blog! My choices in favorite books I consider classic are visually listed below.
I could list lots more that I consider classics, but I want to hear from you. What is your definition of a “classic” novel? Which are your favorites to read, now or when younger?
