Joining the Classics Club


Today, I have decided to join The Classics Club – a club of book bloggers that focus their reading on the classics.

The rules are simple – commit to reading 50 classics within 5 years. And these days, with the advent of vampire lit, I find that I prefer to read classic books that give me a lot more to think about than simply wondering when the movie version of the book is going to come out, and which new hunk is going to star in it, and become the next worldwide heart throb.

So, classics it is, and I have also created a list of the books I plan to read within the next 5 years here. I hope some of you would like to join me on this ride :). If so, please leave a comment, I would love to hear from you about the books you are planning to read.

Those who are not so interested in the classics, no worries. I still plan to work in my regular reading in between. It makes a pleasant change to work in a few bestsellers, YA, fantasy, thrillers, and yes vampires because we all need some sparkle in our lives, right 😉

    Hi Nish, I have read a lot of classics in their unabridged versions and now I’m reading Brothers Karamazov and I’m almost coming to its end. Please add my name to your list and include Russian authors

    I used to think I’ll read more classics when I grow up. I wonder when that’ll be 🙂 You should definitely include Victor Hugo and Les Miserables on your list!
