I tried to subdivide this topic in a number of ways but quickly came to the conclusion that the only books that truly intimidate me are lengthy classics. I know that I should read them, I actually want to read them, and yet devoting the time and effort to reading them is, frankly, quite intimidating. I tried to stick to books I genuinely am interested in reading some day.
This list could have gone on and on, but I limited myself to eleven here. I adore reading classics, and I do hope I'm able to read these some day. Fingers crossed!
What are some of your most intimidating books?
And in case there was any doubt, I do prefer the Penguin Classics. :)
