They’re called classics for a reason.
Maybe you were assigned one in high school, forced yourself to start reading it, and then realized you couldn’t stop because it was so unlike anything you had ever read before. Maybe one was the first book you ever chose to read just for yourself, and it made you fall in love with literature all over again.
Maybe a family member, a friend, a trusted teacher, or a close coworker recommended one because they knew you would love it as much as they did. Or maybe there’s one that’s been on your “To Read” list for years, filed away in the back of your mind, and you’re finally going to get around to it—and know you’ll be better because of it.
Whatever the reason is that draws you in, these are the books that form the foundations of a lifelong love of literature, the ones that stick with a reader forever and help to form their personal preferences. These are essential reading and true works of art.
There’s really only one word that perfectly describes the titles in this collection: classic.
