Classics Book List

I just discovered The Classics Club where book lovers come together and set a goal of reading classics. As I really want to read a few more classics I decided to join their challenge to read as many classics as I could in 5 years. I have kept a goal of 50 classics in 5 years so I can stick to 10 classics per year which is pretty reasonable, I’d say. Also, the books I have read have their title bolded and on clicking on the book’s title, you will be redirected to my review of the book. 🙂

Start Date: 15 June 2018
