What a list! I do love these lists. Good luck! I think that I have read twelve of the sixty listed. I would like to get through every book here. Though in my case it might take twenty or thirty years!
I hadn't heard of this challenge. It sounds excellent! I love the classics. I hope you enjoy your selections!Rebecca @ The Key to the Gate
I love reading the classics so I'm happy to join in on this challenge. Some of them will be re-reads but there are a bunch that I've never read and have always meant to get to.
Thanks Rebecca 🙂 You should check it out, jump on the bandwagon! Thanks for stopping by!
Great list! Some of them are on my list as well. I read Ethan Frome several years ago, will be glad to read more books by Edith Wharton. Jane Eyre, Frankenstein, My Antonia, Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, and David Copperfield are favorites of mine. I read All Quiet on the Western Front a couple of years ago. I read The Handmaid's Tale in 2008. I would like to know what you think of them when you have them reviewed. I'm working my way through The Portrait of a Lady now.
I'm so excited to get going on this challenge. There are a number of books on my list that I've already read but am very happy to read again. (Like The Handmaid's Tale…haven't read that in years but remember how amazing it was) Thanks for stopping by Annette!
Wonderful list and welcome to the club! I love so many of the books on your list, David Copperfield, The Handmaid's Tale, Pride and Prejudice. Can't wait to hear your thoughts.
Well, I'm impressed with myself. I've read 24! Not too shabby. Most of them were in high school though, longer ago than I want to think about. Good luck with your challenge! I would procrastinate until the last couple of months and then frantically try to squeeze the rest in. I hope you're more disciplined than I am!
Hi Allie! Thanks for stopping by 🙂 I'm really glad I decided to jump in!
That's not too shabby at all Jen! I usually sprinkle a classic in now and then anyway but this will be a great reminder. (I just hope it works! lol) I have read some of the books on my list…I should go highlight those or something
What a tremendous list!! Welcome to the club! 🙂
Thank you Jillian, I'm excited to read and reread the books on my list!
