I just ran across this post on Huff Post Books on amazing short classics. There are quite a few that I never read, and didn't realize they were under two hundred pages--some are even under one hundred pages. Like so many readers, it gets harder and harder to find time to read, and it's exciting to think that you can experience a classic you always meant to read in just a few hours or a day. I've always meant to read Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Frankenstein, just to name a few. Oh yes, and Oh Pioneers! and Ethan Frome. All of these are under 600 total pages, still shorter than Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch which is almost 800 pages, currently on best seller's lists and one of my favorite books of the year.
Check out the list.....do you see any you would consider reading, especially given the length? ~ Katherine
