Classics: We love them, we hate them, now we are going to challenge ourselves to reading more of them. Because there are so many different types of classics, different genres are acceptable and encouraged--for example, novels, short story collections, non-fiction, poetry, essays--I'm open for other suggestions!
OPTION 1: Read FIVE classics.
OPTION 2: Read FIVE classics from at least THREE different countries
OPTION 3: Read FIVE classics with any combination of at least THREE different countries and TWO different genres (see above for genres).
Trish has added a little twist...participants must read five books (as defined in the options above), and a sixth title which will be a "modern classic" chosen from a participant's list of suggestions. There are a ton of great suggestions listed on the challenge blog! To join the fun, click here!
My list (which is by no means set in stone at this point!):
1. David Copperfield--Charles Dickens
2. Mrs. Dalloway--Virginia Woolf
3. Persuasion--Jane Austen
4. The Scarlet Pimpernel--Emmuska Orczy
5. Uncle Tom's Cabin--Harriet Beecher Stowe
Bonus--The Known World--Edward P. Jones
