  1. What a fantastic list! Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is one of my very favorite books. I also loved Tom Sawyer, Animal Farm, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. The Great Gatsby is another favorite! You’ve got a great reading year ahead of you in 2013!

    • Thanks! Classics also intimidates me a lot, but I started at reading the translated version of some classics (because English is not my mother language) and I’ll read those that are for children and teens first. Good luck with your list!
