Classics Club

From 2014 to 2019 I participated in the Classics Club challenge to read and post about 50 books from a self-determined list of classics in five years. You can see the results of that project on my former blog, The Emerald City Book Review, here.

After completing that goal, I decided to become more informal about my classic reading goals. But I still enjoy keeping track of my progress, so I’m going to list classic books here as I read them, rather than making up a list ahead of time.

I’ve decided to exclude rereads of children’s and YA classics here, a decision I may later regret, but I tend to do a lot of this as comfort reading and that seems to me a different sort of activity. And I may choose to list only my favorite books by a prolific author, or the ones I consider the most important.
