I was already planning on mentioning this to you when I discovered Sarah's Back to the Classics 2012 Challenge. It's quite simple really: you have between January 1 and December 31, 2012 to read a title under each of the following categories:
- Any 19th Century Classic
- Any 20th Century Classic
- Reread a classic of your choice
- A Classic Play
- Classic Mystery/Horror/Crime Fiction
- Classic Romance
- Read a Classic that has been translated from its original language to your languange - To clarify, if your native language is NOT English, you may read any classic originally written in English that has been translated into your native language.
- Classic Award Winner - To clarify, the book should be a classic which has won any established literary award.
- Read a Classic set in a Country that you (realistically speaking) will not visit during your lifetime - To Clarify, this does not have to be a country that you hope to visit either. Countries that no longer exist or have never existed count.
I have been thinking about how I want to know Eastern European literature a little better + I read most of my classics when I was in high school when I was way too immature to know what's the what + as you already know, I do well with lists... So, to cut to the chase, I'm ENTHUSIASTICALLY in!
Help me with recommendations and please feel free to join in.
