Classics Challenge

This is a list of classics that my sister, friend, and I have challenged each other to read. These are books that we have read and want the others to read or ones that we have been wanting to read. We haven’t set a time limit for this challenge but we are trying to make these books a reading priority in order to work our way through the mist quickly.

I have crossed out all of the books that I have already and will continue to update this page as I read more of the books on the list.
