A Century of Books

I saw this challenge at Beyond Eden Rock! 🙂 It is a reading project created by Simon, and the idea is to select 100 books, each published in a different year of a 100-year time period, so that you end up with 100 books that cover 100 years.

My aim is to read one book for every year of the 19th century. Here is my list:
