The Classics Club
My 4th list:
September 2022 – September 2027
I’m thrilled to present to you my 4th list of 150 titles for The Classics Club.
Yes, you don’t need to limit yourself to 50 titles.
I was going to have a longer list, going through all my Goodreads TBR, but then The Classics Club announced an upcoming new Spin, so I needed to have my list done, and it’s taking me a long time to put together. So 150 will do.
Here is my new table, with color codes for books on my physical shelves, nonfiction, Japanese, and mystery (though I probably missed some green cells).
At this point, I don’t have any special classics projects, so hopefully I’ll do a better job at sticking to my list, but who knows!
Actually, I do have some upcoming small projects, that will nicely fit with this list: The 1929 Club, and Novellas in November, as well as Nonfiction November.
I will obviously update the table as I go along.
You actually see I have already read 2 books from that new list, as I started making that list on September 1st.
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 150 oldest titles! Those are titles I added there along the years.
Be patient, it may take a few seconds for the file below to show up

OUT OF THESE 50 TITLES
HOW MANY HAVE YOU READ?
WHICH ONE IS YOUR FAVORITE?Save
A stupendous and, to one who reads slowly, awesome list, Emma! I’ve read and reviewed a very few of these (Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own, Szerb’s The Pendragon Legend and Crichton’s The Andromeda Strain) but none of the Simenon listed, or the Christie, and of course I’ve yet to touch Japanese literature. Still, good luck with all these, and bonne chance with the Spin!
of, my new list is on Sheet 4 of that google doc.
The Andromeda Strain was on the list I just finished
Wow, so many books. I started counting which books I read but then I noticed there are more than twenty, so I only read one of the novels, the very first one, Tristram Shandy.
I’m excited to see what comes up for the both of us but we don’t have a single one that is on both of our lists.
Yes, this is my new full list. I’ll be posting my list of 20 for the spin on Saturday. I forgot, did you like Tristram Shandy?
Not really. And you know how much I love classic novels.
If you’re interested, maybe after reading it yourself, here is my review.
Now I’m even more curious
Lots on your list I’d like to get to myself. Grey Mask is one I’ve read, fun if a touch Nancy Drewish, also Pippi Longstocking. The Case of the Gilded Fly I enjoyed a lot, especially Crispin’s writing; and also the Nesbitt, a great deal of fun
Definitely a lot to be looking forward to!

Some really wonderful choices there – The Letter Killers Club and The Invention of Morel are particular favourites!!
This was on my 3rd list. I was actually a bit disappointed by The Letter Killers Club, but found The Invention of Morel excellent.
You have to click on Sheet 4 at the bottom of the google doc to access my new 4th list
Got it! There’s some pretty impressive stuff on that list too!!!

Will look forward to what you will read. All the best.
Thanks. Hoping to really stick to that list, and stop reading other classics, lol
Interesting list… but if they pick 5 as the number, I really hope you like it better than I did!
This is my big 150 list for 5 years. Not my 20 book list for the spin – which I will reveal tomorrow. Unless you clicked on Sheet 3 and so the spin list.

I clicked on Sheet 3 – #5 was Mrs. Dalloway, which I did not care for!
I tried it years ago, had a really hard time, but I thought I might try again. We’ll see

I struggled through it, and at least I can check VW off my bucket list of famous authors I’ve never read.

I never thought about using my Goodreads list. I tend to forget I even have a “wishlist” there . Now I’m wondering what I missed that could have gone on my classics club list #2
Yes, for me it’s the most convenient ay of adding and tracking TBR. And you can classify them by number of pages, years of publication, or year you added it to your TBR
I need to explore Goodreads more closely it seems
There’s been a lot of criticisms against it, but it works perfectly for me
Nothing is perfect….
