Tell Me Something Tuesday: Classics

Tell Me Something Tuesday

Tell Me Something Tuesday was hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings, but she has (temporarily?) stopped blogging. So a group of us that had been doing posts (Linda from Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell, Karen from For What It’s Worth, Roberta from Offbeat YA, Jen from That’s What I’m Talking About  and me) decided to get together, come up with some more topics and keep the meme going.Michelle made us a logo and we’re off and running. For more details, check out this post where I reintroduced the meme.

I can be sporadic, but when I do join in I will always share next week’s topic at the end of the post. So, today is about…

Do you read classics? Why or why not?

I do, but not super often simply because I’ve already read so many of the big MUST READ classics. I took one of those quizzes and I had read 41/50 on that list. But I really do like a lot of them. Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters are some of my favorites — to the extent that I actually reread a couple of them each year. Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice I used to reread yearly, now it’s every few years. This past year I read Persuasion, Sense and Sensibility and Emma all at times where I needed a good comfort read.

What about you? Do you read classics?

Next week’s topic: Do you tend to enjoy spin off series? Or are you hesitant about them?
