I’m doing Top 10 Tuesday through the summer. Topics provided by The Broke and the Bookish blog (http://www.brokeandbookish.com/). Today’s challenge is to list your favorite classics of all time (however you define classics). These are the ones that came to me first.
1. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee: Love the book and the movie
2. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. Long but so worth it.
3-5. My favorite Jane Austen’s: Pride and Prejudice, Emma, and Sense and Sensibility
6. The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien: Probably should have been #1 on this list
7. Just So Stories and Rikki Tikki Tavi (from the Jungle Book) by Rudyard Kipling
8. Watership Down by Richard Adams: not sure if this one counts as a classic since it was written in my life time, but it should. 😉 Same thing with A Wrinkle in Time. Meant to add it to the collage but missed it. 😦
9. The Call of the Wild by Jack London
10. Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls
11. The Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe: OK, so not ALL the tales and poems, but definitely some of the tales, and that nevermore raven poem.
