The Classics Club – 2

The Classics Club is a club created to inspire people to read and blog about classic books. There’s no time limit to join.You simply sign up to read and write on your blog about at least 50 classic books in at most five years. This is my second list of books I would like to read in the next 5 years ie by January 2027, although my first list took me nearly 10 years!
