50 classics reading list

I recently stumbled upon something nice and intriguing.

This: https://theclassicsclubblog.wordpress.com/how-to-join/

Decided to join and create my list. Will start this adventure first of January 2016 and with 50 classics to read (and some of them a bit longer) I set my end date to the 31st December 2019.

Here’s the list, my classics. A lot of them are books that I read the first time in school (mostly German Classics) and some new ones that I never touched before. Looks like an interesting adventure. Some are in English, some in German and some in French. e are books on my Kindle app and p are real books from my collection.

  1. I’m glad you decided to join in. That’s an interesting list – I’ve read the books by Jane Austen, Bronte and a couple by Dickens, too. Have fun with your reading!


  2. Thanks for the comment. Hopefully will be an interesting journey. A lot of the German ones I read the last time 35 years ago in school. And hated most of them. Especially Nathan der Weise. I’ve made the mistake of reading it before it was a topic in school. When it was, they killed the book
