The Classic Club

Inspired by Jillian @ Room of One’s Own I decided to join The Classics Club
 
“The Classics Club is a club created to inspire people to read and blog about classic books. There’s no time limit to join and you’re most welcome, as long as you’re willing to sign up to read and write on your blog about 50+ classic books in at most five years. The perk is that, not only will you have read 50+ incredible (or at the very least thought-provoking) works in five years, you’ll get to do it along with all of these people. Join us! We’re very friendly.”
 
>>> So my plan is to read from 50 to 200 Book (Classic & Classical novels, Plays, Poems and short stories) in the next five years and blog about them…
 
I know it’s going to be bloody hard but why not reading at 10 classics a year which shall take a life time to end my 200 so let it be more; just more.
 
I pray not to fail reading my list because it will be my first time to real classic’s original full text.
