Classics Club

What is the Classics Club?
I have a degree in English but my education and reading background of the classics is woefully lacking. I got the idea for my version of the Classics Club from the Classics Club blog. Although I am doing my own thing, I recommend you check out their site and develop a reading plan of your own! For me, some of these are modern classics or books that I believe to have long-lasting reach. I’ve linked the ones I’ve read to Amazon (affiliate links) as well as my review when it’s completed.
