I've decided to take on *one* more reading challenge for 2011.
After completing a nineteenth century British history class last month I have the biggest urge to read material from that time era. The Deranged Book Lovers' Wordsworth Classics Reading Challenge 2011 provides me with the perfect motivation to do so.
So... I hereby pledge that between January 1, 2011 and December 23, 2011 I will tackle five nineteenth century novels. Apparently, having read five to eight books will make me a bourgeois - not too shabby!
Bellow is a tentative list of novels that will be used to complete the challenge.
1) Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde - R. L. Stevenson
2) North and South - Elizabeth Gaskell
3) Persuasion - Jane Austen
4) Oliver Twist - Charles Dickens
5) Cranford - Elizabeth Gaskell
What do you think about reading challenges? Are you participating in any this year (or have done so in the past)? If so, what ones?
