Classic Novels You Should Read in a Lifetime

Every reader challenges the barriers of what kind of books to read. Here I've compiled my list of classic novels read in my life time. Most of my books have come from the Library, but I do possess a 2,000 volume library. I've made a lifetime just reading books. My favorites have been the classics.
