The Classics Club
September 7, 2019 – September 7, 2024

I’m totally thrilled to present to you my 2nd list of 50 titles for The Classics Club.

Yes, I managed to read/listen to 50 books in actually 4 years. See my first list here.
I’m very far from having reviewed them all, but I plan to do more reviews on these, and hopefully a few recap videos.

Here is my new table, with color codes for nonfiction, mystery, and Japanese, 3 prominent categories. I will obviously update the table as I go along.

How did I come up with these titles?
Simple: I opened my To-Be-Read Goodreads shelf, and put them in order of publication, and I picked the 50 oldest titles! Those are titles I added there along the years. I believe only Cyrano will be a re-read.

Be patient, it may take a few seconds for the file below to show up

I’m curious:

  1. How many of these have you read?
  2. Which one/ones is/are your favorite?

  1. The one by Nikolai Leskov catches my eye, although it is a title new to me. I enjoyed his long stories based on Shakespeare, “A Lear of the Steppes” and “A Lady Macbeth of Mtensk.” Hope you enjoy your selection! A fascinating list!

  2. I have read Cyrano de Bergerac. I thought it was silly. I have also read A Room of One’s Own (essential), The Sword in the Stone (then read the whole series), The Big Sleep (and all the rest of his books, all great.) I tried but could not get through Tristram Shandy though many writers rave about it. Good luck!

    • oh oh, sounds like my TBR could then get even longer after The Sword in the Stone and The Big Sleep.
      I watched a fascinating video by Salman Rushdie, about the books that meant a lot to him, and Shandy was his first. I had never heard about this book before!! It sounded fascinating, we’ll see

  5. I’m delighted every time I see So Big on someone’s list – it was such a wonderful surprise when I spun it on one of my earlier spins. I now want everyone to read it 🙂

    I particularly look forward to all your Japanese lit reviews.
