Reading the Classics Updated Lists

As some of you know, I have been reading the classics. I started last year on my  65th birthday, and have  enjoying it.  I found a three-volume series on Kindle titled 50 books you must read before you die, and also found the Harvard classics.  Three years ago, I figured out I have  read about 100 books per year since I was ten years old, which would mean I have read about 6,000 books all told and about the same number of movies/TV shows seen.  See the following partial lists

1001 Books to Read Before You Die List

Books read 2019

books read during 2018

I will write a review of each book as I finish it. This will probably take me until next year but I have finished about half of the 150 books. Some are fast reads, and some are very slow because the 19th century writers wrote too damn long books for modern readers. and most are problematic from a  racist, sexist and ablest point of view.

Not all the classics are in the list below.  I  will add those to the list at the end of the list.

I have written reviews on G Chesterton’s work (below)

Reading G Keith Chesterton

And on George Elliot as well (below)

George Elliot Novels

And although Stuart Woods is not a classic author, I have written a review of his work as I have read most of his writing. (below)
