  1. The Woman in White and Oliver Twist are on my list. Wish I had put Northanger Abby on my list. Do you have the list of books you hope to read for this challenge? I put mine together by visiting others who are participaing. Since I haven't ready very many classics. I enjoyed browsing around your place!

  2. I posted all those on The Classics page site. Somewhere. But, my list changes, we have the freedom to do this.
    For instance I've read more classics this year (just began in June) than I'd anticipated.
    Also, I did not plan to read A Tale of Two Cities by Dickens this year, but just bought the book and have began reading it.
    Most of the classics books I own and have been sitting on my book shelf waiting to be read, a few a re-reads.
    Thank you so much for commenting.

  3. Hi Annette! I just wanted to say hello and wish you all the best with The Classics Club! A Tale of Two Cities is one of my favorites. :-)
