Classics Books + Classics Club

So I decided to take on the classics challenge! I will be trying to read ALL of the books listed below in the next 10 years! This list comes from the Prentice hall website, which I’ve linked below.  I came across this list in college when I was studying to become an English teacher and also preparing for Med/Law school.

I will be posting my thoughts on my blog or YouTube channel. This is also a part of the classics club 🙂
