April 20th – Top 5 Wednesday: Books that I am intimidated by

Okay, so I am intimidated by the classics. My reading challenge for this year included reading at least 10 books classified as classics. I have read 31 books so far this year and only two were classics( Beloved by Toni Morrison and To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee). I still plan on meeting my target. I mean, we still have 7 more months till the end of 2016, right? So, there is still time.
Here are some of the classics that intimidate me.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Moby Dick by Herman Melville
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
I don’t own any of these books but they are all at the library at my place of work. I usually pass by the classics sections, pick one book(most are huge), read the blurb, quietly put it back on the shelf and tiptoe to the aisle that has memoirs or thrillers. However, next time I pass by the classics, I will pick one book and hopefully walk out of the library with it. Someday…
