The Classics Club

It won't surprise you to hear that I adore classic literature. Unfortunately, I haven't been posting so many reviews of classics so far. And that I would like to change. I've come across The Classics Club recently, and I really grew fond of the whole concept of it, so I've decided to join the group of classic readers and reviewers, and hopefully, I could contribute with something as well. If you're interested, you can find more about The Classics Club on this website. You're more than welcome to join in. Here is my list of 50 classic books I would like to read within next five years. A few of them I've already read, but I might as well like to read them again since I haven't written a review for all of them yet. I wish this project helped me to read more classics and share my thoughts about them on this blog. But most of all I wish I found more books I could cherish...

  1. Úžasné množství inspirace, Veru. Ve čtení klasiky zaostávám více, než by se mi líbilo, takže beru tenhle nádherný příspěvek jako další motivaci. Děkuji Ti a přeji krásné dny :)

  2. Úžasný článek, Verů. Stejně jako Kristýnka, i já mám nějaké ostudné mezery v klasice, třeba sestry Bronteovy, takže mockrát díky za inspiraci :)
    Měj se krásně
