Books That Could Be Penguin Classics Someday

This is a list of one hundred books that could, a long time in the future when they're public domain, become part of the penguin classics collection (also known as the Penguin English Library). Some are based on their status as modern classics; others are just books I think deserve to make the cut. How many of these have you read?
