In recent months I have picked up more and more classics and enjoyed them so much that I have decided to make a blog. I have made a reading list of 50 books I want to read in the coming two years (starting on the 1st of June 2015). I will also post reviews of the books from this list that I have finished. Feel free to suggest classics that I may have missed that you feel should be amiss on a classics list and I will take it under advisement.
