Books Forever

Do people have time to read these days? And when they do, do they read the classics? The students of Indiana University respond with a heartening "Yes!:

"Seven English majors responded to a mass e-mail seeking their recommended reading list and nearly all of those lists included 'classic' novels, such as those that would be read in a survey of literature class. Authors such as Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Mark Twain and Walt Whitman appeared frequently, while William Shakespeare was present on nearly every one."
