  2. There are still a few classics I have not gotten to yet. At this rate I don't know if I will get to any of them.

    1. There are so many classics, I doubt any person can read them all. I've been reading classics for decades and there are still a lot I want to read.

      But I'm sure you'll get to read some. Maybe take place in the next classics spin?
