    what is your favorite classic book?

    i don't know what would be considered classics, i guess anything from The Grapes of Wrath to Romeo and Juliet. and since we are now living in this "vampire era", the Twilight Saga might be considerd classic too.

    East of Eden is one of my favorites =)

    ^ I am reading To Kill a Mockingbird. My friend is naming her child Atticus so I'm eager to hear the story behind it. ^_^

    The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas is my favorite book of all time.
