The other day I was looking at my bookshelves trying to figure out what to read next. I'm always getting new books from Goodwill and usually have a revolving door of books. This time I looked behind those newer arrivals to see books that have been permanently hanging around. I decided to pick 10 classics that I had owned for a very long time, but had never gotten around to reading. I also made my decision based on the era of these books. Most were printed in the middle of the 20th century. I have such a love for old books such as these. I'm really happy with the selection. I think there is a good variety of authors and genres. After I finish each book, I'll give a short report here and also highlight some of the great visual aspects to these books.
I'm starting with Adam Bede solely because it's the smallest book in the group. I almost didn't pick it because it didn't match the others, but I love George Eliot and it's a shame I haven't already read Adam Bede.
