It's been more than a year since I quit blogging, and I'm so glad to be back again. Instagram, my favourite social is great for quick posts, short posts, but when you want to post a list, or a schedule, or thoughts on a book, its not the place. I know that I won't be the most regular poster, and I also don't need too many commitments in my busy life, but reading books is something I do daily, so posting every once in a while about the books my kids and I are reading, shouldn't be too big of a problem.
Lately I've seen quite a few people posting about the Classics Club challenge. The goal is to read 50, 100, 200, or more, classics within the next five years, and to post a review of each finished book on your own blog. Of course I must join!
I have chosen to commit to 100 classics, to be read within the next five years. That looks like a lot, but 20 books per year, sounds a whole lot easier to do.
Here the books I've chosen for this challenge, in no particular order:
I know for a fact that when I have a plan in place, I read more purposefully and it encourages me to keep going. Most of these books that my boys will read in the coming years, so its good for me to preread them, and to be able to discuss these with them. My start date is 1 January 2018, and the date I have to be finished with this list is 1 January 2023.
