I'd suggest Persuasion, it's my favorite Austen novel. And get your classics from Barnes and Noble, they have stuff with notes so it's a lot easier to read!
Thanks, Debussy Girl! The edition I picked up at the library was published by Bethany House. Could you check yours and tell me what publisher/edition it is. I just checked out Sense and Sensibility, but I will put Persuasion on my short list.
BTW what's your favorite Debussy Piece - I played some of the piano pieces from the Children's Suite - Goliwog's Cakewalk is a favorite, a bit difficult to play and I like Dr. Gradus ad Parnassum. Most people like Claire de Lune.
Hehe, to be perfectly honest I've heard about 3 of Debussy's pieces, all of which were from my siblings' piano recitals I've been going to forever. I got my screen name from the part in Twilight when Edward says, "you know debussy?" I wanted something related to twilight but not obvious, so that's why I picked my screen name.
Anyways, the books I'm talking about are the Barnes and Noble classics, the bookstore publishes them. You can find them here online:

They usually (or at least in the stores I've been to) have a large display of their classics out, not all that you can get online, but the well-known ones. The rest you can find in the fiction section.
It's the only way that I can read classics now.
