Default Classics

Who else is weird like me and likes classic novels?

No one, yep that's what I thought.

Anyway, just if anyone cares:

I read Anna Karenina this summer and it just blew my mind it was amazing. I also read The Secret Garden, Little Women, Alice in Wonderland, and Goodbye Mr. Chips (which is this really cute story about a little old professor in England who worked at the same school for like 50 years)...

Anyyway. Anyone else?

I like both classic novels and literal classics, like the Iliad and the Odyssey
