I love classic novels.  I spent my teens and early twenties immersed in many classics and they have stayed with me throughout my life.  Below I have collected the reviews of Classic Novels that I have reviewed since starting this blog in 2007.  I feel that I have not been reading as many classics as I would like, so I have joined the Classics Club to have a five year challenge to get me moving on the classics that are still on my "to read" list.  What are your favorite classic novels?  Many of mine you won't see here as I read them before starting this blog, but I would still love to discuss them!
