1/10: Do you read classics? Why or why not?

Haven't done of these prompts since like November! Been so busy with other stuff!

Classics? Yesssss I love reading the classics. I don't read as many as I would like, but I try to read a couple a year. Sometimes I re-read one, but I try to try a new one at minimum once a year.

I will say, though, that classic novels can be rough sometimes. Some can be so dry...so boring (I hate using that word, but it's true). However, you will occasionally find a true gem like some of Austen novels or 'Wuthering Heights'. Or Poe or Shakespeare! 

Reading classic novels can be a gamble, but I love them.

I just can't get into them at all.

Mary, I don't blame you. They aren't for everyone. They are rough to get through.

Mel, same. sometimes.

Jen, it's not for everyone. Some are super rough.
