I looked up a list of "classic" novels, and found this page: 1000 novels everyone must read: the definitive list.
I went through the entire list, and these are the ones I have indeed read:
- Bridget Jones's Diary - Helen Fielding
- The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13 3/4 - Sue Townsend
- Sense and Sensibility - Jane Austen
- Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
- Emma - Jane Austen
- Persuasion - Jane Austen
- Jane Eyre - Charlotte Brontë
- Wuthering Heights - Emily Brontë
- Neuromancer - William Gibson
- Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - J.K. Rowling
- The Hobbit - J.R.R. Tolkien
- The Sword in the Stone - T.H. White
- Everything Is Illuminated - Jonathan Safran Foer
And now the list of those books I know I've read at least some of, but can't remember actually finishing:
- The Name of the Rose - Umberto Eco
- White Noise - Don DeLillo
- Animal Farm - George Orwell
And those books I never got to the end of, in spite of writing English essays on them and getting excellent marks:
- The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood
Incidentally, this list would have been a lot shorter if I hadn't made it a mission in 2009 to finally read some Jane Austen (and the Brontës).
I did find some other items in the list that I vaguely recall having read or maybe started reading, but my uncertainty made me leave them off the lists.
