My sister has been reading a 100 Greatest Novels list for the last couple of years. This summer I started my own list that I found here. So far, I've been enjoying doing this even though some of the books haven't been that great. I just finished Moby Dick a couple of hours ago. It took me 6 weeks to finish it! While the main story was really good, there were parts that were extremely boring to me. I think I am going to check out Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray next. I found it on FullBooks and it looks like it will be good. So far I have read:
1. Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes
6. Moby-Dick by Herman Melville
11. Emma by Jane Austen
17. Absalom, Absalom! by William Faulkner
23. The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner
29. The Portrait of a Lady by Henry James
41. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
64. A Passage to India by E.M. Forster
77. Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe
83. Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
I'm excited to get a few more books crossed off of my list!
