The Classics Club September 2022-2027



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

or clickon this link.

And on Saturday, I will announce my list of 20 titles for the next Spin

I’m curious:

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

See my 3rd list here (137 titles)
See my 2nd list here. (50 titles)
And my first list here. (50 titles)

  1. 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!


  2. 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.

    Good luck.


  3. 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
