The Classics Club


I’ve joined the Classics Club!  Since this is something I’ll be working on over five years, I’ve given it its own page.  Below is my list of 50 books that I’ll complete by August 13th, 2019.  Most of the books were chosen because I already own them in one format or another, or they’ve been on my mental TBR list for years.  There are a couple books on the list I have read before, but so long ago that I think I’ll better understand/appreciate them now.  I’ll be writing reviews of each book on the list I read, and then striking through the book on the list as well as linking it to the review post.
