Ten must read classics of great literature

I love to read good books. Here are ten of my favorite must-read classics. Classic novels have enchanted and entertained readers for decades.

I feel one of the saddest effects of modern society has been to minimize the joy of reading great classic novels. All young people should be introduced to great novels during their teen years if not before.

Never underestimate the lasting positive impact of a great classic book!
