i found “the big read” by the bbc on the internet and i decided to tackle it. i know, one more list, hahaha 😀
but i think this is a beautiful mix of classics and modern classics and i want to do this. i decided to divide it in three parts. the first part are books, i have already read. the second part are books, that i own and which are on my tbr. the last part are books i do not own and i don’t know, when i will get to them.
