    Welcome to the club! I just finished re-reading Little Women and it was more wonderful than I’d remembered!

    I’m doing a PL readalong this January and February if you want to cross that one off your list 🙂 Happy New Year!

    Oooo, you made it through Moby Dick! Congratulations!

    The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire! Do you plan to read all of it, or an abridged version? I have been dying to read it since I was a teen but it is intimidating, so intimidating that I don’t think I even have it on my lists anymore. I really need to put it back on.

    The Classics Club challenge is so helpful for keeping us focused. Happy reading!

      Moby Dick was a big book, I had to push myself at times, but it was worth it and it was probably one of my favourite reads from last yer.

      LOL … I didn’t even realize I had the Roman Empire book on my list. My reading list is based on 100 preloaded books on my ereader. I will probably read whichever version I can download for free! 🙂

    Very nice list, I have read 54 of these, and many more are on my TBR. What is the time frame you are looking at, for finishing all of the 100?

      Thanks for stopping by! I originally set a goal of 2015, but I’m pretty sure I won’t be finished until maybe 2017-2018 at the rate I’m reading. What classic(s) are you reading right now?

        I am currently reading Bleak House, which I should be able to finish in March. Unfortunately, I probably will not have any lined up for April, April promises to be more of a Sci-Fi / Dystopia month, with Atwood, Iain M Banks, Bujold, Veronica Roth (among others) lined up.

        I do have a list of 250 Classics on my blog I intend to chip away over the next few years.

          Dickens is a writer I feel I should more of and there are usually quite a few reading events for him, but I haven’t participated in anything this year. I will try to read at least of one of his books. I’m a big fan of dystopian fiction too so I look forward to reading your reviews. I actually just published a guest post by another blogger who read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Do you like classic dystopian?

            I very much do – classics, dystopian, classic dystopian – I read them all! I think your friend liked Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep as much as I did, but when it comes to the movie version – Bladerunner – our opinions are poles apart. In my humble opinion, Bladerunner is the best Sci-Fi movie ever made, and while it is only loosely based on the book, I thought it to be one of those rare movies which are better than the book!

              You and my husband would be on the same team, as he loves Blade Runner. Although, he hasn’t read the book, but I doubt that would change his mind.


              • If he is a true fan, I don’t think he would change his opinion either.

                My reading plans for April are up, less diverse than I would have liked, with 3 Sci-Fi and 2 Dystopian books among my planned 7 for the month.
