I am not sure how you define classic literature. I am not sure how I define it anymore either. However, I know there are a slew of books I was supposed to read, but time, energy, degree requirements, diversions, and fill-in-the-blank reasons, I just didn’t get to. And when you’re daily writing and work centers on books, well, we all know that there is no such thing as the bottom of that TBR pile. That’s part of the beauty of walking into a bookshop or library, the notion that you will never get to read all of it, so read something new and something old, something your friend loves and something that looks pretty on a shelf. What I am encouraging you to do in this episode is stop for a minute, look backwards, and select something that you “missed” along the way.

“I'm a big believer in pairing classics with contemporary literature, so students have the opportunity to see that literature is not a cold, dead thing that happened once but instead a vibrant mode of storytelling that's been with us a long time - and will be with us, I hope, for a long time to come.”
—- John Green

In this moment, in this summer, in this year, does the story resonate with you? Will it remain a classic for the future? Does it live up to the hype?

Let me know what you choose. And let me know what you think.
