As a managing director at Deutsche Bank in New York, Manuel Maximino is responsible for Latin America structured and fixed income trading. Away from work, Manuel Maximino is an ardent reader, and his favorite fiction reads are mostly literature classics.

To get into reading literary classics, it helps if readers make a list of books that they want to start with. Given the large body of classic literature, it can be daunting to choose which ones to start with. A good way to for beginners to narrow down the choices would be to look through listicles made by news sites like Time Magazine and The Telegraph.

There are different types of genres of classic books as well. There are theater classics like Shakespeare’s work, science-fiction classics like 20,000 Leagues under the Sea, and many more. Before choosing which book to start on, readers should consider the subjects that interest them the most, perhaps by looking at the themes of the contemporary books they’ve enjoyed.
