Classic novels...?

Hi! I love reading and have decided to start reading the classics. Can anyone find a list for me with the more general classics? I've already read "To Kill a Mockingbird" and it was absolutely the most astonishing novel I've read. I'm currently reading "Gone with the Wind" and love it as well. Thanks so much in advanced! I really appreciate it :)

    Jane Eyre and checkout John Steinbeck. I like all of his books. If you liked "To Kill a Mockingbird," you must read the modern classic "The Secret Life of Bees."

    Les Miserables, by Victor Hugo, Little Women/Men, by Louisa May Alcott, Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, both by Mark Twain. Jane Austen is good, and Dickens.

    Wow, no one mention "The Catcher in the Rye"! Great book. I think every other book in existence has been mentioned already though, so I'll just leave it at that.
