Classics for the Time-Challenged
In his article, 20 Novels You Can Read in One Sitting, Mark Nichol argues that even people with very little time can become acquainted with several great classics. I have read quite a few of the books on the list and they took more than one sitting (I'm a pretty fast reader too), but that may be because I was reading slowly to savor the well-written prose. To tell the truth, reading Wuthering Heights was slow going because I didn't like the characters and I had to force myself to finish. Anyway, I appreciate Nichol's list. It encouraged me to try a few new titles.
