Classics Club

I have a love of literature, and I love to go back to the roots of where literature comes from.  That is what this The Classics Club Challenge means to me.  It’s a commitment to fit reading classics into my reading, because with so many new releases I find it hard to go back to the classics.  But I want to, and by committing to this challenge, I WILL!  =)

Here is a list of 52 Classic novels (including a little bit of every genre) that I would like to finish by November 30th, 2017.  If I keep an even pace, I need to be crossings off one of these books every five weeks!  So without further ado, my list:
