You've got a great list! A Tale of Two Cities, Around the World in 80 Days and Les Misérables are among my all-time favourite books and I hope you will enjoy/have already enjoyed them. I also really, really like your idea of a life mission. I'm in the Classics Club as well, that's how I found my way here. I think I'll keep exploring your very interesting blog :)
