Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.

For those of you who scoff at the idea of picking up Dostoyevsky or Tolstoy for a little light reading, who shy away from Kafka, Thomas Mann or even Dickens, Rebecca at Rebecca Reads tweeted a brilliant article about classics, why they are classics and why we should read them.  I agree with everything the author says, including the fact that reading them forces us to learn about a time and culture in ways that we will never get from history books or site-seeing tours. 

Once you read it, come back and let me know what you think about the author’s comments.  Do you agree or disagree?  Do you read classics?  Why?  What draws them to you?
