Classics Challenge

I've decided to join the Classics Challenge because, quite frankly, I need to read more of them. The rules are as follows:

Classics: We love them, we hate them, now we are going to challenge ourselves to read more of them.

**Choose Your Level
1. Classics Snack - Read FOUR classics
2. Classics Entree - Read FIVE classics
3. Classics Feast - Read SIX classics

I will be going for the classics snack, as I am not entirely sure how much of an appetite I will have, and at least one of my choices is quite long. Here's what I'm thinking about:

John Steinbeck, East of Eden
Jane Austen, Persuasion
Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God
Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Marble Faun

This list is, of course, subject to change.

This whole event goes from April 1-October 31, 2009.

I'm doing this one too but haven't chosen my books or written up a post yet. I loved the hurston book and the Steinbeck is very good too. You should enjoy them. I see you're doing the 2nd Canadian Book Challenge too. Happy reading.

Persuasion is one of my all-time favorite books ever. :)

Laurie said...

Yeah, I am signed up for waaay too many challenges. I'm an addict :)

I keep hearing that everyone else loves Austen so I'm hoping for a good experience. I've tried to start Emma twice now and I've just not been able to perservere.

Thanks for signing up for the challenge Laurie! I just read Their Eyes Were Watching God and really liked it. I've heard great things about Persuasion as well. Happy reading!
