    What is a classic book you have NEVER read but wish you had?

    Do you have a classic book you wish you had read, but haven't gotten around to doing so?

    I've never read Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island. Always wanted to though. Love the animated film Treasure Planet haha. That's kind of why I've recently wanted to go back and read it.

    I have bought and read at least one book per week, since 1963, I think that I have read everything that I ever had a burning desire to read, I certainly can't think of any book that I may have missed out on.  However, there is one book I once read about alchemy, that I no longer have, I would like to re-read it, but I can't remember the title, I can remember the painting that was used as the cover, the famous painting of a long haired old boy sitting infront of a massive glass teardrop shaped container over a furnace of some sort.

    I have never read Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings". I have tried several times recently but have never gotten very far. I think the problem is that I am so Lord of the Rings-ed out between the new movies, the old movies, radio adaptations, and everything else, that I pretty much know the whole story even though I've never read the novels.

    I feel bad about it! I am a major, MAJOR book worm (I read Greek mythology and I LIKE it!) and I feel like there's something wrong with me because I can't master something as simple and as well known as this story! I'll just have to try again, I guess... I have read and enjoyed "The Hobbit".

    A lot of the books I've wanted to read were books that everyone else claimed to be required reading in school. 1984, Animal Farm, The Chronicles of Narnia, War of the Worlds, Frankenstein, Moby Dick, Slaughterhouse Five, etc. I must have been in the first class where the teachers decided to make a change to the reading list. I've started to catch up, but there are still a lot of classics I need to get a hold of.
