Anything from Hemingway to Tolstoy to Shakespeare to Homer, what is your favorite classic book/play/poem/etc?
I recently decided that in my daily 30 minutes of downtime I might try to squeeze in some reading. I've always wanted to read the "classics" but the last few that I picked up I could not get into at all (Slaughterhouse 5 and One Hundred Years of Solitude...the titles sounded way cooler than the actual text) so to avoid spending another 100 pages wasting my time before I finally put the thing down, I was hoping you guys could recommend me some classic literature that you found particularly enjoyable.
Currently working through As I Lay Dying and The Tale of Genji. Looking at Don Quixote next...excited!
