Well, fret no more! This challenge should be right up your alley. ;) I am pleased to announce:
The Classics Reading Challenge 2012!
Since I'm pretty much booked the rest of this year (and I'm sure a lot of other people have challenges from this year to finish), I decided to start it next year. I'm thinking of having 3 levels ranging from reading 1 to 10 classic novels. That way even if you only have time to read one, hey, at least it's one more classic you've read!
The classics I'm talking about are not only books by Shakespeare or Jane Austen, but also modern classics too. Ones from the early 1900's. Some that are from the 1950's or 1960's. Any book that is considered a classic that was published prior to 1970.
This gives you a pretty good range for books. There are so many that I've been wanting to read, I don't know how I'll choose which to focus on for the year! But I think I have a couple in mind that I definitely want to read.
I'll probably put up an official sign up post near the end of the year so people can prepare and plot before 2012 starts. So keep watching for it!
What do you guys think? Are you interested in a Classics Challenge in 2012? Any suggestions for the challenge? Would you like to see a giveaway attached to it? I think I have most of it plotted out, but I am always looking for ideas to improve on.
