Classics Club Challenge

My Classics Club Challenge is almost at an end!  There is only a year left to complete it.  If I don’t make it I won’t stress, I will continue on.

I have decided to join The Classics Club . This club requires that you read 50+ classics in the time frame that you specify for yourself. I have chosen 100 classics to be completed in five years. I don’t feel that 100 books in five years is very much but I do want to leave myself some room for variety in my reading. So without further ado, here is my list!

Started: July 2012
