Time Capsule Books

Most people shy away from “classic” books, thinking them to be outdated or written in a way that’s hard to read. While this is true of many classic novels, there are plenty of classics that stand the test of time. I like to call them “Time Capsule Books,” because you could lock the book away and dig it up again a hundred years later and it would still be relevant. Here are some Time Capsule Books you might enjoy:

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
