Classics Challenges

Read seven works of Classic Literature in 2012
Only three of the seven may be re-reads

How Does it Work?

I've organized this challenge to work a little like a blog hop. I hope this will make it more interactive and enjoyable for everyone.

Instead of writing a review as you finish each book (of course, you can do that too), visit November's Autumn on the 4th of each month from January 2012 - December 2012.

You will find a prompt, it will be general enough that no matter which Classic you're reading or how far into it, you will be able to answer. There will be a form for everyone to link to their post. I encourage everyone to read what other participants have posted.

Join the Challenge

Anyone who loves to read and has a blog is invited
You can join at anytime

  1. Write a post on your blog with a list of the seven works you hope to read in 2012 and why you chose them-- but don't feel bound by the list. 
  2. Please include a link back to this page in your post, so others can learn about the challenge and join us. 
  3. Fill out the form at the bottom, linking to your post.
  4. Check back on the 4th of each month.

My Reading List

  1. Thank you for joining the challenge, Dessa!

    I love L.M. Montgomery! I've read almost all of the Anne series bar Rainbow Valley and Rilla of Ingleside. And I loved Blue Castle and the Emily and Pat series' too. Austen is always a delight too.

  2. Just found this challenge...won't be participating, but you chose great books.
