Classics Reading Project

Long-Term Reading Project: 
Read the Classics I Own

My long-term reading project is relatively simple. I want to read the classics I have sitting on my shelves already, and boy oh boy do I have quite the truckload. A handful of these books I am 75% sure I read way back in junior high and high school, but I have no memory of them, so I thought they should go on the list.

A Few Notes:
A * before the book indicates I only have an electronic copy
*** after the book indicates I know I have the damn book but I can't find it on the shelves
