140+ Classic Books to Read

"Reading can open your eyes and take you to some incredible places, and classic novels are classic for a reason. They've stood the test of time because they carry important, well-written stories and lessons." (Mikaela Miller, Jamimico via pinterest)
I have maintained the order of the source list but it is not significant for this challenge.
"I can't believe Penguin Books put a meme on the cover of a classic piece of literature." (Kewl0210 on Twitter re "The Life Of Samuel Johnson")
