What are some of yalls favorite classic novels?
It's honestly been a long time since I've read anything other than magazines, but I want to start reading actual books again.

What are some of your favorite classic ones? I'm looking to start re-reading those again. Huckleberry Finn, 1984, the Great Gatsby, To Kill a Mockingbird, etc. Stuff like that are what I want to look at.

East of Eden, For Whom the Bell Tolls, Gone with the Wind, Journey in the Dark: wish I could read those for the first time again.

Besides what’s already listed:
Les Miserables, Where the Red Fern Grows, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, anything by Charles Dickens (if you like him)

I don't think most men have read it because the main character is a girl ... and it's a coming of age story ... the movie is very good, but stops about halfway through the book.

But it is very well written, and so very interesting. But I'm a weirdo that enjoys historical fiction.

O Henry short stories. Probably doesn't fall into classics but I love reading Max Shulman books(Dobie Gillis, Anyone Got a Match?) and John D Macdonald's Travis McGee series.

I'd rather list the writers of some classic novels I like.

F Scott Fitzgerald
John Steinbeck
William Faulkner
Flannery O'Connor
Sinclair Lewis
Ernest Hemingway

I think with those 6, it's easy to compile a great reading list of good books, though O'Connor only has 1 or 2 novels. Most of her work is short stories. Faulkner gets a lot of deserved pub for his novels, but I actually like a lot of his short stories better than his books. Fitzgerald also wrote a lot of great short stories.

I guess what I'm saying is don't limit yourself to just novels.
