My Classics Club List


The following are the list of books that I am reading for the Classics Club (a description of the club and the reading challenge can be found at this link.) I'm starting small, deciding to work on 51 books in five years (since I read many other types of books, I don't want to commit myself to too many classics at once). These titles incorporate fiction and non-fiction, new reads and rereads, books I'm excited for and books I'm nervous to pick up. (Rereads are marked with an asterisk). If all goes well, I will be completed by (or before) January 23, 2018. See the bottom of the list for my blog posts on the books I finish, which I will link as I go along. Finished ones will be highlighted.
