Classics

I've always felt that I don't read enough of the classics and as I already have some on my shelves (*) I thought that I would take advantage of this and read them!!

By the way - should anyone quibble about what constitutes a classic, I have decided to go with the list of classics as mentioned in LibraryThing - clearly if the majority of readers have decided that it is a classic, then who am I to argue!
  • Robinson Crusoe* by Daniel Defoe
  • Robin Hood* by Howard Pyle
  • Around the world in 80 days* by Jules Verne
  • Moonstone by Wilkie Collins
  • The once and future king by T.H.White
  • The age of innocence by Edith Wharton
  • The picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
  • Silas Marner by George Eliot
