Water, Earth, Fire, Air… Isn’t it like coming home? I’m a recent recruit to the Avatar fandom, but I can already feel the inevitable impact this show has had and will have on my life. In our time of need, Netflix came through and added the classic Nickelodeon show to its line-up. I know I’mContinue reading “Books to Read if You Love Avatar The Last Airbender”
Today is Earth Day! Not only is today Earth Day, it’s the 50th anniversary of its founding. I’ve always loved being outside and travelling to the National Parks in the US. Along the way, I’ve also found some books that continue to spark my love of nature.
I’m so excited to be participating in the Stay Home Reading Rush this week, from April 16-19, 2020. This readathon is a shorter version of the annual Reading Rush in the summer and in response to the need to stay home during this time.

That’s why one of my reading goals this year is to read more of the books I already own. But, why oh why, have I abandoned these books in the first place? Am I just not interested in them anymore? Am I intimidated by them? Did I impulse buy them? All great questions that I didn’t have answers for many of these books.
Okay, so I should start out this post saying that this is not a comprehensive list of modern classics I want to read. In fact, I started trying to compile all of them, and it was basically endless. So, with that said, I just chose 10 that have been on my list for a while. Honestly, it’s a bit random, but that’s okay.
In my 2020 Reading Goals post, I said I wanted to read more classics. In order to accomplish this, I decided to pull together a list of the classics that 1.) I already own and have not read and 2.) interest me the most. Now, this list will be my list of pre-1900 classics. I have many more “modern classics” that I want to read. Because I don’t want to make this post go on forever, I will post a separate list for post-1900 classic books.
