The Classics Club

“The Classics Club was started on March 7, 2012 by a blogger who wanted to see more people posting about classics literature in the blogosphere. Her goal was to, ‘unite those of us who like to blog about classic literature, as well as to inspire people to make the classics an integral part of life.’ She thought about several ideas but finally settled on inviting people to make out a list of (at least 50) classic titles they intend to read and blog about within the next five years.” About the Classics Club

For some time now, I have wanted to read more classic literature but had been putting it off because of the academic reading load my university classes entail.  When I saw the Classics Club it seemed like the perfect incentive to read many of the classic novels I had been considering.  So without further ado, please see my novel list below…
