My “To-Read” List

I am not ashamed to admit it: I’m a book nerd.

I love to read. I have a huge bookshelf in the office that won’t even hold all of my books. Plus, I have tons of books on my Nook. It’s one of my favorite ways to pass the time, and I love getting lost in a story.

And, as a book nerd, I think it’s important to read the classics. I have already read a few of them, including:

  • To Kill a Mockingbird
  • Bram Stoker’s Dracula
  • Many plays and sonnets from Shakespeare
  • The Great Gatsby
  • Of Mice and Men
  • Harry Potter (I don’t care what you say… that series will always be a classic)

But, there are still so many that I want to get my hands on. I have a few of them in my library right now, but I need to take the time to actually read them. So, my book bucket list includes the following:

  • Great Expectations
  • Anna Karenina
  • Little Women
  • Sense and Sensibility
  • The Original Sherlock Series
  • Pride and Prejudice
  • Jane Eyre
  • Uncle Toms’ Cabin
  • Wuthering Heights
  • The Woman in White
  • A Tale of Two Cities
  • The Three Musketeers
  • The Scarlet Letter
  • The Call of the Wild
  • Ivanhoe
  • Moby Dick
  • All’s Well that Ends Well
  • Treasure Island
  • Gulliver’s Travels
  • The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
  • Around the World in 80 Days
  • 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
  • The Picture of Dorian Gray

There are so many more that I’d like to read, too. I think being well-read is an important quality to have. You can learn so much from reading the classics. I love it. And, one book at a time, I’ll get through my list. These books aren’t classics because they’re boring, which is what many high school students tend to think. They’re classics because they focus on themes that transcend time and pop culture. They give important lessons, and they never cease to inspire imagination.

Any other suggestions for my book bucket list? Thanks in advance!
