TBR Pile Reading Challenge 2016

Bookish Lifestyle's 5th Annual TBR Pile Reading Challenge!

Recently I've been feeling the urge to change my Classics Club list. As a half-way house, I've signed up to Evie-Bookish's amazing reading challenge. I stumbled on it by chance and to make up for the missing January-February, I've added two that I've already read and been dying to read this year to take my total TBR to 21 (Level: First Kiss). As a change, they're ordered by the date of first publication.

The Iliad by Homer (800BC) Read
Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare (1596)
Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes (1605)
Autobiography by Benjamin Franklin (1791)
The Communist Manifesto by Marx and Engels (1848)
Moby Dick: or The Whale by Hermann Melville (1851) Read

Ghosts by Henrik Ibsen (1881)

Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche (1883)
Ulysses by James Joyce (1922)
