#17booklove Day 25 - #classiclove

A belated shot from this morning's B&N visit. I've read too few classics.

BekahB I love the B&N classics editions! I've been slowly building up my collection. 😀 3y

The Scarlet Pimpernel | Baroness Orczy

#classiclove #readat10 #17booklove. We watched a lot of old classics when I was growing up and I went through a swashbuckling movie and book stage. I loved The Scarlet Pimpernel and The Prisoner of Zenda. I'm not sure how many times I've read them or how old I was. I was a precocious reader so I think about eleven or twelve

howjessreads I loved that movie too - 3y
howjessreads The Jane Seymour version @Dragon? : 3y
ScientistSam @jess.how the one with Merle Oberon and Leslie Howard is also fantastic 3y

Dragon Thanks @jess.how my favourite is the version @ScientistSam mentions ,although I have seen and enjoyed the Jane Seymour version 🌺 3y
Dragon Thanks @ScientistSam you read my mind. I love ❤️ that version and have always had a crush on Leslie Howard ( I even forgive him for being Ashley Wilkes , my least favourite character in Gone With the Wind) 3y
ScientistSam Leslie Howard is incredible - he brings the two sides of the character to life with a glance! 3y
Dragon So true @ScientistSam 👍 3y

Daddy Long Legs | Jean Webster

About 20 years ago a man in a restaurant noticed my daughter had a copy of Daddy-Long-Legs and told her he loved that book. So a 10 year old girl and a man from India bonded over a book in a West Virginia Taco Bell! ❤

The Changed Brides (Classic Reprint) | Mrs. Emma D. E. N. Southworth
post image

For #classiclove, I found the two classic books I own (to me classic also translates to vintage) that were gifted to me. The tagged book is one my Grandma gave to me, and my copy of Wuthering Heights came from one of my Aunts. #17booklove @jess.h

North and South: Easyread Edition | Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell
post image

Oh boy, I love the classics. I'm rarely disappointed by books that have stood the test of time. I have very little time to read so I love knowing the time I put in will be worth it.
These are the classics I plan to read in 2017. Most of them are over 500 pages so it might take me a while, but that's the goal! @jess.how
