The Classics Club List

I have a new list that you can read, as I have updated my list. Clicky here.

So, in the last couple of days I’ve been trawling the internet (book blogs & porn) and came across the Classics Club, which I am joining. It certainly would help tick 100 books off Boxall’s 1001 list, and will focus my reading in the next couple of years. I have decided to tackle 100 books in the next four and a half years, so challenge ending 31/12/2018. The following is my list.
