Reading list: Classics Club: Second Round

Created by: Moonlight Reader

I've already one done one round of the Classics Club project: 50 classics in 5 years. Last time around, it took me 3 years on the nose to complete my list.

This time around, I've identified 50 additional classics. This list is more modern than the last list, although it does still have some 19th century lit.
