The Classics Club Project : Wrap Up


It’s a long journey with The Classics Club. The Club has changed since then, more and more interesting events have been held. However, as time went by, there are things that made my blogging time reduced, let alone joining events or read alongs. I’m still reading classics, but these two years I have to take my own words of wanting to finish my original list.

These are my first year progress, my second year, and my third year. I even couldn’t make forth year progress, so I’ll be nicer to myself, and proudly say that these past 5 years, I’ve read 127 classics (short stories and poetries included), and reviewed 111 of them. Here are the list, continued from progress links above:

I consider myself succeed, and I’ve given my reward to a friend, a copy of The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, for her and her son once he’s old enough to understand the story.

Will I join another round of this project? I haven’t decided it yet. I definitely will read a bunch of classics, but I don’t know if I could manage my blogging time better.

    Do join again, it will be much easier that we have succeed on first round. We can calculate our own pace, and adjust the challenge degree.
