    There are an awful lot of classic books - hundreds. Can you be any more specific than that?! Why? From any particular period? Any genre?

    As a basic starting point, in the BBC's 100 best loved books a few years ago, the top ten (which would all be considered classics, though some are modern), were:

    1. Lord of the Rings

    2. Pride and Prejudice

    3. His Dark Materials

    4. Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

    5. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

    6. To Kill A Mockingbird

    7. Winnie the Pooh

    8. Nineteen Eighty-Four

    9. The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe

    10. Jane Eyre

    If you want to see the full list, it's here , and is an excellent starting point for classics of all genres and eras.

    It doesn't seem particularly helpful just to give you a random list of any classics I can think of! Hope that helps.
