Last year, I decided to read 50 classics over the next five years. And unlike some goals, I’m happy to say I’ve stuck to this one.
In 2013, I read:
- The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
- The Spy Who Came in From the Cold by John le Carre
- The Time Machine by H.G. Wells
- Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
- Master and the Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov
- Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
- Moby Dick by Herman Melville
- Murders in the Rue Morgue by Edgar Allen Poe
- Rabbit is Rich by John Updike
- Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut
I liked the movie version of the Count of Monte Cristo better, I think Moby Dick deserves a re-read, but I loved Jane Eyre and the Rabbit series just keeps getting better. Looking forward to continuing this kick.
