Barnes and Noble classics
Went to Barnes and Noble today to pickup a book for the wife. While browsing around I noticed the Barnes and Noble classics table with a bunch of books that we were supposed to read in high school:
Treasure island
Tom Sawyer
Huck Finn
Mobey dick
Wonderful wizard of oz
Dracula
Frankenstein
Robinson’s Caruso
Swiss family Robinson
And so on (You get the type of books)


Any of these books are worth the read?

re: Barnes and Noble classics
Huckleberry Finn for sure, some purists say to read Tom Sawyer first - but it’s not as good

Frankenstein is good but a lot different than any movie made about that whole situation

I loved wizard of oz as a kid but the last time I tried to read it (about 3 years ago) it was really boring

My boys enjoyed 20,000 leagues under the sea and the call of the wild - they’re a quick read and I’m not sure if B&N has them in the classics

re: Barnes and Noble classics
For a few months now in addition to reading other things, I've been working on the stories in this one:



One day I'll probably purchase some others like the stories from various mythologies, the Penny Dreadfuls collection, and maybe some of the others.

Definitely some interesting/cool covers for a bookshelf...to fancy things up.

I'm determined to read many of those classics. I'm not sure if I have read any to be honest. The classics are like 5-9 bucks at B&N so it's a good deal.

Sometimes I feel like I should read the classics and then I remember I didnt really enjoy the ones I’ve read.

If you have an e-reader, a lot of classics are free on various sites because they were first published before copyright laws. I know Amazon used to have a whole section in their Kindle store for them, but you had to dig around a little. I haven't checked in a while. The cutoff year is around 1925 or 1930 I think.


Of those listed in the OP, Huck Finn and Moby Dick were the only ones I was able to finish. I tried a few others on the list, but none of them kept my interest.

There’s a lot of really good ones. Sentimental education, Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, Dorian Gray, Crime and Punishment etc. All better than most contemporary books.

Charles Dickens wrote a bunch of classics. Great Expectations is my favorite.

Edgar Allen Poe is also worth checking out.

Do they have Candide by Voltaire? One of my favorite books ever.

Reading this automatically makes you pretentious every time a Frankenstein's monster type shows up on TV. Still good.

Does that apply to Franz Kafka?
