I started off with "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn".......but I think the Tom Sawyer one came first, because it seemed to reference past events that possibly transpired in a prequel, so I stopped reading that.

I started reading Romeo and Juliet then, since I enjoyed reading and acting that out in high school. I got too involved reading while I was reading it though..........I started reading it allowed on a bus, which embarrassed me a tad.

I appreciate the life story izaaz. When are you going to suggest me a book though?

Alice in Wonderland.


I vote for The Picture of Dorian Gray.

And thanks so much for posting that list. I searched Google for it, and came up dry. Not sure why the Wikipedia entry didn't pop up.

I enjoyed reading Julius Ceasar and Macbeth back in High School, read those. It's a shame that they don't have Othello.

Oh dammit, I went off on a tangent again, lol.

I reccomend "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes."

And with that, I bid you a good night!



Little Women is actually pretty good. No kidding.

And also, I wish that the collection had more Charles Dickens books.



Importance of Being Earnest



Wow.. I just arranged the list by author... there are a lot of Charles Dickens books!

Read David Copperfield... amazing book.
