I am so excited for this post today, I’ve been meaning to join The Classics Club for such a long time. When I first started blogging 3 years ago, I meant to do it. Never got round to it. This time around, I’m pulling an Eliza Doolittle on myself and move my bloomin ass.
No time for too much chitchat here, there’s lots of books that need to be entered here. In case you also want to to join, here’s the fine print:
- – choose 50+ classics
- – list them at your blog
- – choose a reading completion goal date up to five years in the future and note that date on your classics list of 50+ titles
- – e-mail the moderators of the Classics Club blog (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your list link and information and it will be posted on the Members Page!
- – write about each title on your list as you finish reading it, and link it to your main list
- – when you’ve written about every single title, let them and everyone else know!
It did take me some time to compile my list. I mostly made use of The Goodreads Classic Must Read List and I was actually quite surprised to see how many I have read. To make life easier for myself with this challenge, I am opening a shelf on my personal Goodreads Bookshelves to be a companion to the list below. Some of these will be re-reads, some will be first time encounters.
So without any further ado, here’s my list of 50 books I plan to read between September 2020 – September 2025. Books aren’t listed in any particular order (Good grief, I don’t have time for that as well)
Just some small print from my side:
I don’t believe in torturing yourself by completing a book you really can’t get your nose stuck in. So if I read any of these and I know I won’t complete it, I will replace the book with another one on the Classics lists. It will be mentioned on this post and the monitors informed.
Gosh, this is a bit of a long post today. I think I need to go and get my nose stuck in a book now before I get completely discouraged!
Have you read any of the books on my Classics list? Will you advice me to remove and replace any of these?
If you are also a member of The Classics Club, please give me a shout out.
