As other people here have already pointed out, many of the so called "classics" are really not that long when you take a closer look at them. It is simply because some of the larger books like War and Peace tend to steal most of the limelight that people are under the mistaken impression that for a book to qualify as a "classic" it must be big enough to shatter a floor tile if you drop it. Classics is also a very broad category, which could mean anything from Victorian era books to The Old Man and the Sea or Lord of the Flies. Most places where you can buy or borrow classic books these days will also have some form of information where you can check out the page count, so first figure out what type of books you would like to read within the "classics" genre and then go for the ones that are short enough to fit in your time schedule.
