Classics Club

I have edited this so many times. I will probably continue to do so. I think I mentioned in a post that I am not going to review or link back to the Classics Club consistently or at all. I am going to remove those books that I've finished (you can easily find any review under tags or search), and those books I've little interest in attempting to read over this next year. I doubt I can even finish all these. Perhaps I will make another classics list without a deadline and not written in stone for after 2017.

  1. Wonderful list! It looks like you have a great selection of books and I wish you the best of luck!

  2. I’m on an important quest for a quote from the Anne of Green Gables books (I’m not sure if it’s in the movies or not) mentioned to me once by someone else. I’ve never read it myself, so this description is going to be vague, but after scouring the internet, I found you commenting on another blog’s “Gilbert” post and you seemed fairly knowledgeable, so if you’re up for the favor, I’d appreciate your help. This quote was said either by Gilbert or Anne (to the other), and I think it was Gilbert but I’m not positive. It is going to be special and moving (enough to be mentioned to me), and it has to do with friendship/companionship/faithfulness/nostalgia/joy of the relationship/looking back over all the times spent together. I know that’s really broad, but for any quotes that pop to mind (or you can find) I would love to know them. My email address is Thanks so much!


  3. There is a section at the very end of Anne of Avonlea which hints at what is to come of Gilbert and Anne's friendship. There might be a section at the end of Anne of Ingleside on the anniversary. It also might be during the (2nd) proposal at the end of Anne of the Island. That is all I can come up with right now; I am sorry! I want to begin a quote book like my sister at some point.

  4. You're making some great progress on this list. Especially Middlemarch and all those Sherlock books! :)
