  1. okay, so i’m not sure if you want “classics” for this list or not. But one of the best classics I’ve ever read is A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith. one day soon I’m going to post my reading list on my blog, so maybe you can get some ideas for that. I’ve had it forever, it’s a list of books that Rory Gilmore “read.” Anyway, it has new and old classics, which I thought was neat.
