So…I did okay in 2016 with the Back to the Classics reading, I just didn’t post on most of the books. And in 2017. Whoops. I guess I read two or three books that qualified, but, again, didn’t write about any. So I wasn’t going to sign up for this (or really any year-long challenge except the TBR challenge)–but–when I looked over my TBR list, I realized that if I finish all my TBR Challenge books I will have completed the basic level (6/12 books) for this challenge. And if I read the two alternates, I will be 1 away from the middle level (9/12). So…third time’s the charm?
Hosted by Karen from Books and Chocolate, the categories this year are (all books must be at least 50 years old):
1. A 19th century classic
2. A 20th century classic
3. A classic by a woman author
4. A classic in translation
5. A children’s classic
6. A classic crime story, fiction or non-fiction
7. A classic travel or journey narrative, fiction or non-fiction
8. A classic with a single-word title
9. A classic with a color in the title
10. A classic by an author that’s new to you
11. A classic that scares you
12. Re-read a favorite classic
(More details/rules at Karen’s original post.)
I will admit, even assuming success with the TBR list, I may not get much further–there are a few categories I’m not sure at this moment what I’d do with, especially if I try to stick with books off my own shelves. At least there’s plenty of time to decide!
Thanks again to Karen for hosting. Now what to read first…?
