Classics Club List #2

This is my second list of at least 50 classics I began reading December 1st, 2016, and finished on June 28, 2020.  Rereads are marked with an asterisk.

I define "classic" as being more than 50 years old , being well-known (or by a well-known author), and/or being influential on society or other writers.
