Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is all about Top Ten Favorite Classic Books this week. The guidelines are loose (my favorite kind!) so I'm looking at Top Classics I Haven't Yet Read but Fully Intend To.
Madame Bovary - I know the plot, have read about it, feel I know it, but have never actually read it.
A Farewell to Arms - I know, I know--if you like Hemingway, this is novel is why.
Paradise Lost - How did I never read this in high school or college? Maybe I'll listen to it--that's how I "read" Dante's Inferno.
Robinson Crusoe - I think I'll like it. A must-read for anyone interested in the early development of the novel as I am.
War and Peace - I finally tackled Anna Karenina a couple of years ago, so I just have to make time to read this one.
The Mayor of Casterbridge - I actually really like Hardy and have owned a copy for years.
Crime and Punishment - Again, I think I'll like it, but have been avoiding it.
The Color Purple - I really need to get a copy so I can actually put it on a reading list.
Tristram Shandy - see note regarding Robinson Crusoe.
Les Miserables - knowing all the songs from the musical by heart doesn't count. Must read, if only for the connection to the American Civil War.
