I think it's probably a good idea to have a year-round book suggestions thread here, rather than a new one each month.This will make choosing books to put in the polls at the end of the month much easier for me. :)

So, feel free to suggest some classics that you would like to read.

The Count of Monte Cristo
Wuthering Heights
Madame Bovary
Sense and Sensibility
A Midsummer Night's Dream
for starters

Rachel (Snoopi) Here's one that is a Spanish classic but can be read in English: La Regenta / the Regent's Wife. About this work, briefly: "With its frank sexuality and searing critique of the Church, La Regenta scandalized contemporary Spain when it was first published in 1885." It would be fun to read a Classic from Spain, not as well known but certainly one of those that is always studied and learned.

Alright, thanks for the suggestions! All of these books have been added to the list for upcoming months.

Carmen (carmenxrae) Maybe for future months we could read a classic horror!?
Maybe Dracula or Frankenstein.
