Catching Up on (Mostly) Classics

I've always been an indiscriminate reader from a variety of genres. When I first began using the list challenges site I realized that tendency had steered me away from many books of substance.
I was woefully lacking in what according to most lists presented here are considered classics.
I'm not sure all of these qualify, but they have appeared on one or several classics challenges.
