The Classics Club


I joined the Classics Club back in August, 2014.  Below is my completed list of 50 books.  I finished it in July, 2018, over a year ahead of schedule.  Most of the books were chosen because I already owned them in one format or another, or they were on my mental TBR list for years.  There are a couple of books on the list I had already read before, but so long ago that I wanted to reread them.  The titles with links are to the reviews I wrote.  I may do another challenge in the future, but for now I want to revel in my accomplishment.
