To Read a Classic

     Hello all! I'm not sure what it is, but there is just something about fall that really gets me into the reading mood! It's probably the combination of the cooler weather and the less busy schedule in fall, but I have no issue with it. One of my favorite things to do when it gets chilly is have a quiet weekend at Lake of the Ozarks, sitting on the screened in porch with a warm blanket and a classic novel. Of course, a hot cup of coffee is a given as well. I define a classic book as one that is at least 20 years old and that has some sort of notoriety along with it. They're usually enticing to read because of what you've heard about them, no? The one drawback I find to "classic" books is that some can be a little boring or hard to read. As a kid, it was challenging to find older books I liked because I was too distracted with Harry Potter to look on my own. At some point, my mom actually started suggesting ones that she liked and for awhile I would only read those! The first one I have a memory of her suggesting is To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. When I think of "classic" as far as books go, that one immediately pops into my head. Some of my other favorites are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum, and Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote. Happy Reading!
