What Classic Should I Read?

I've been reading a lot lately and amazingly enough, I stay awake! It might have something to do with the fact that I'm not pregnant and both children have been sleeping through the night for several months now. I've been thinking that I haven't read "the classics". I've been reading a lot of 'grown up' books and am enjoying them. (I usually have stuck with teen fiction). My reading tastes seem to have matured and I want to read a few classics, but don't know where to start. What are some of your favorites? I'm thinking Jane Austen something, but I've also got (found them at DI, woot woot) Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, Little Women, The Invisible Man. I also have access to a great library, not amazing like you Salt Lake County folks. So, tell me. Leave a comment. What do you suggest I start with? I know a lot of readers, read my blog so I expect to hear from you. Help me fall in love with a good book! Thanks!

Two of my all-time favorites are Pride and Prejudice (Jane Austen's best book, in my opinion) and Little Women. Jane Eyre is excellent, too. Any of those would be a fantastic first choice.

Little Women is one of my absolute favorites. I re read it a few years ago and realized it had some great advice for young mothers.
