Nicolle I never really thought of The Chronicles of Narnia as a classic but I may be wrong...

Kjerstin (kjerstinkaye) | 17 comments I wasn't sure. The reason I put it on here was because I have the Barnes and Noble Leatherbound Classics version of it, so I just figured it was a classic. I think it might be :)

Nicolle I suppose if you count things like Alice in Wonderland as classic it is similar. When was it published?

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe was published in 1950, not sure about the rest :P

Kjerstin (kjerstinkaye) | 17 comments I would definitely consider Alice in Wonderland a classic. Also, it was published almost 100 years earlier than To Kill a Mockingbird, and has similar, if not greater, staying power.

I guess it all just depends on how you define a classic.

Nicolle I consider Alice in Wonderland as a classic I was just comparing it...

To-Read
Any and all other classics!

Are there any books on my Read list that anyone wouldn't consider classics? I wasn't sure about all of them, and I wouldn't be offended if you think they aren't! :)

*I updated this list and decided to add Modern Classics. Until I get a firm grasp on where the line is between a classic and a modern classic, anything written in the 1900's and after, that I consider worthy, will be in my modern classics.

Nicolle That is a good idea, I might do that with my list...
