  1. I appreciate what you've done here. I was wondering how I was going to find more classic plays to read. So far, I've read 60 on this list. I've been reading classics since I was in high school. This site is going to be my go to place for ideas. It might take me awhile to learn the different paths to resources I see available. Merry Christmas! This is the best possible gift going forward for next year.

    1. *bows* Glad to be of service. There is also a page for Shakespeare.
      Thanks for visiting.
