The Classics Club

Monday, July 07, 2014

The Classics Club is, in their own words:

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. After a few months, the club grew, and it was decided to create a separate site to house everything related to The Classics Club. And this blog was born!
My list will hopefully be finished by March 7, 2017, and my goal is to read 50 classics. I have already deviated some from my original list, so those "extras" will be listed below the original list of 50. Here is my original post
