Classics Club List #4

Here is the newest list of at least 50 classics I vow to read and review by October 1st, 2027.  It is a fluid list, and will very likely change over the next five years, but it will always have at least 50 books on it.  Most of these are novels, but there are a few plays and one or two books of nonfiction.  Rereads are marked with an asterisk.  As I read and post reviews on my blog, I will link these titles to those posts.

I define "classic" as being written before 1970, being well-known (or by a well-known author), and/or being influential on society or other writers.
