The Victorian Challenge


I've decided to join up with the Victorian Challenge, as I really need to read more Victorian literature. Between Jan. 1 and June 30 I have to read books written during, set in, or about the Victorian era. I can choose my own level, and right now, given all the other challenges I have going, I think I'm going for "A Walk in Hyde Park" which involves reading four books. Right now I'm planning:

Red Pottage by Mary Cholmondeley (1899)
My Brilliant Career by Miles Franklin (1901)
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte (1847)
Fingersmith by Sarah Waters

Hopefully this will get some more Victoriana under my belt, though I recognize that books 1 and 2 just barely make the cut!

Hi Laurie. I am a new Wodehouse fan and a slightly obsessed one. Looks like we are participating in a few of the same challenges. Happy reading in 2009.
