Classics Club List 2


The Classics Club is a club created to inspire people to read and blog about classic books.  Members are invited to make out a list of (at least 50) classic titles they intend to read and blog about within the next five years. I completed my first list in September 2018 (which was actually 6 years from my start date, but the club is a forgiving bunch).  This is my second list and my goal is to read 50 of these titles by October 1, 2023. 


 There are 69 titles on the list, so I have a few alternate choices. I am setting it as a rule for myself that I cannot add to this list, I have to select from these titles. My posts about this project, both this list and the earlier one, are here
