If you don't know where to start in reading classics, I highly recommend Susan Wise Bauer's book, The Well-Educated Mind. She breaks down classics into several categories: Novels, Poetry, Plays, etc., covering one section in each chapter. Then, in each category, she lists the most well-known classics and gives a summary, ISBN number, and her favorite edition. She also includes a set of discussion questions for each category. The discussion questions are in three sets: Grammar Stage (simply reading through and making notes on what the book is about), then Logic Stage (answering questions about things like structure and style), and finally Rhetoric Stage (what do I think about this book?).
