The Classics Club

I have decided to become a member of The Classics Club and commit to read 50 classics within the next 5 years or, more specifically, by 5/29/2023. When I look at the list of books I’ve chosen, I vacillate between thinking this list is huge and that I’ll never complete it to considering it a do-able amount of novels. We shall see if I really do get to read them all. Has anyone else joined The Classics Club? What’s on your list?
