Classics to Read in 2007

Susan has inspired a list making frenzy with her Thursday Thirteen post on the thirteen classics she wants to read in 2007. It's never too early to start planning next year's reading and there are a bunch of classics I've been meaning to get to. So I thought I'd give my own list a shot:

  1. Tristram Shandy by Laurence Sterne
  2. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
  3. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
  4. The Metamorphisis by Franz Kafka
  5. Tess of the d'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy
  6. Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog!) by Jerome K. Jerome
  7. The Story of an African Farm by Olive Schreiner
  8. Adam Bede by George Eliot
  9. Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe
  10. Howard's End by E.M. Forster
  11. Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton
  12. To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf
  13. The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy
It's good to have goals!
