To paraphrase former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart:

"A Classic is hard to define, but I'll know it when I see it" ...

From Wikipedia:

Quote:
A classic book is a book accepted as being exemplary or noteworthy, either through an imprimatur such as being listed in any of the Western canons or through a reader's own personal opinion.
So I guess if Jon considers Harry Potter to be a "Classic" he's welcome to his opinion. I, on the other hand, do not consider it a classic.
