Classics Club

I’ve been looking through a couple of the blogs I follow and the Classics Club keeps popping up.  Admittedly, I haven’t read a lot of the classics and I’d really like to change that. So I’ve joined the Classics Club and decided to challenge myself to read 50 Classics in the span of five years. In theory, I will have read all fifty of these books by September 2, 2018.  Once I’ve finished each classic, I’ll do a little write up of it, and link that write up to this post.

    • Thank you! My mom contributed Gone With the Wind since I haven’t seen it. I’ve seen the movie of Little Women, but I didn’t ever read it. I went with classics that I haven’t read/completed for my list. Thank you for stopping by, I appreciate it.
