The Classics Club


"When you reread a classic, you do not see more in the book than you did before; you see more in you than there was before."
 ― Cliff Fadiman

Reading for the Classics Club begins March 2020 and will end in March 2023.

If you're curious about how it works or want to join the club, simply visit the How to Join page.

And if you remember, yes, I signed up to do this before but gave myself too many "serious" challenges that weren't going to be much fun reading. This list has been revised with some books I wasn't even aware of the first time and a whole slew of Agatha Christie that I can hardly wait to start reading! πŸ’“
