The Classics Club

I’m excited to participate in the Classics Club Challenge. My goal is to read 50 classics by September 2020.

Here are the basics. Make a list of at least 50 classics you want to read and the timeline in which you will finish them. Post the list on your blog. Then as you finish the classics, write reviews and link back to the master post. Check out the full details on The Classics Club. I’m excited to get started!

Here is my list. Some are rereads because I just love them. Most are new reads. A few are huge–800 plus pages. Several are children’s classics. All are books I have wanted to read and want to enjoy.
