My favorite book is the USA Trilogy by John Dos Passos which is comprised The 42nd Parallel, 1919, and The Big Money. I read them in one volume when I was in college and loved them. I really enjoy Dos Passos' (ok so were does the apostrophe go?) work. None of his work is available on the Kindle and I have not been able to find it on any of the free websites. I think it is because is a relativly unknown author, which is a shame.
Another vote for Pride and Prejudice, which I only re-read recently b/c of my Kindle. I was never tempted to re-read the DTB, though I still have the paperback I read back in high school, when I didn't appreciate it nearly as much as this time around.
"Jane Eyre"!! (First sentence, last chapter: "Dear Readers, I married him.")
No, no, "The Call of the Wild."
No, Frank Baum's (of "The Wizard of Oz" fame) Santa Claus books. (There are two that I know of.)
Wait, I mean "Dracula"; it is SO much more than the Bela Lugosi movies; fabulous read.
"King Solomon's Mines" is so quaint these days, in light of Indiana Jones, Laura Croft, etc.
Oh, and I loved reading "Phantom of the Opera"; the scene on the roof of the opera house..., sigh, shiver!
So much to read, so little time.
Many people probably would not consider them classics, but my favorites would be The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. I have read them at least once a year since the late sixties. At least now my copies are hard bound so hold up for more than a couple readings. Sure wish they were available for the Kindle. (noted in a couple of other threads)
