Thanks for the welcome!
Yes, I agree Jerry M that there are many experiences when reading the classics. Fahrenheit 451 was my favorite book for a long time. In fact i have enjoyed Bradbury"s work for a while and that book was my introduction to his work. I remember liking the Martian Chronicles a lot by him as well.
llevinso, I have a collection of HG Wells around that i need to finish reading. i think the first story I read was War of the Worlds the book that was illustrated by edward gorey. i remember finding it at my campus library and being ecstatic because i love edward gorey'S illustrations as well.
I definitely need to pick up Brave New World, its been on my to do list. As far as the science fiction that i have read, I'm not sure if you would call it classic or not but some books are Robert Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land. I planned on reading more of his work. Right now i seem to like Philip K. Dick a lot and i have read Ubik,Flow My Tears,the Policemen Said, and i will probably read the collection of short stories next. Frankenstein will most likely always be a favorite of mine.
Moisture Farmer, I really enjoyed The Lather of Heaven (i plan on re-reading it soon) from Leguin so maybe that is on option for you.I haven't read her other books but i have been meaning to pick up the Dispossessed as well. It seems that I read a little of every genre and wish i had more time for only books but oh well.
