Armchair BEA Day 1 Classics: Classics Club Update 1





Great Timing on Armchair BEA's part to have Classics as a topic :)  I discovered the Classics Club at the beginning of the year. The goal of the club is to choose 50 classic books to read. I orginally hoped to finish by this summer, but I'm pushing back my goal to December 2013.

So far I've finished 4. I really have to get moving! I really enjoy classic novels. They are a snap shot into a different time with themes that often are as revelant today as when they were written: Here are the books I hope to read by the end of the year.
