A lot of my blogger friends are members of the Classics Club, and since this seems to be my year of jumping on the bandwagon, I decided to join. Here is my list of fifty classics in five years.
Only one is currently in-progress, Frankenstein, the rest are books that I plan to read or reread within the next five years.
Most are novels, but there are a couple of non-fiction books in there as well.
With this list, I will finish my end-to-end reading of George Eliot, begun a few years ago, and make good headway with R.L. Stevenson and John Steinbeck. It also accounts for finishing up Trollope's Barset collection. It has a couple of books set in Venice and about the Civil War, both of which are current reading interests. It also includes a number of firsts--my first Joyce Carol Oates, my first Sir Walter Scott, and my first Ann Patchett.
