The Classics Club

Jillian is starting a Classics Club.  The challenge is to read a minimum of 50 classics in a maximum of five years.  I plan to read 50.  I’m going to re-read a lot of books (which is perfectly alright with her).  She put a big list of rules and regulations but I just want to read the classics.  I will post five different posts at different times with ten book titles in them.  Once I’m done the ten books, I will post a new list.  I think it will be easier to keep track of everything that way.

Here are my first ten books.

Northanger Abbey (Jane Austen)

Persuasion (Jane Austen)

Bleak House (Charles Dickens)

Jane Eyre and Wuthering Hights (The Brontës)

Little Dorrit (Charles Dickens)

Anne of Green Gables (Lucy Maud Montgomery) 

The Inheritance (Louisa May Alcott)

Little Women and Little Men (Louisa May Alcott)

If you have any other classics that you think I should add to my list, just let me know.

What I’m Reading

Bleak House (Illustrated + FREE audiobook link + Active TOC)

I guess this is becoming a regular thing – posting what I’m currently reading.

I finished Jane Eyre in two days.  I couldn’t keep away from it.  It’s a fabulous book and I’ll definitely be re-reading it in the near future.  Anyway, I’m reading Bleak House at the moment.  I find it somewhat hard to understand but I’m keeping at it and it’s bound to get better soon.

Have you ever read Bleak House?  Would you recommend it?  Would you recommend the 2005 miniseries?  Let me know your thoughts.
