Classics Club: Franny & Zooey

Yay for me! Another Classics Club book off of the list! For those who aren’t familiar, The Classics Club is a challenge to pick classics (at least 50) and read them all over the next 5 years. For those who read my initial list you know it’s more of a “books I always wanted to read or re-read.” Most of my list is re-reads of books I either loved as a kid or want to re-vist, books I was supposed to read, and books that I love the author and want to experience more of their work. The plan is to have my list of 50 all read by December 28, 2020.

March was a crazy busy month at work so I didn’t get much reading or posting or really anything in but hopefully it clears up soon because so many fun plans in April and May. So besides work and work here’s everything that March has been filled with.
