Back to the Classics 2013

This is the second of two year-long challenges that I’ll be participating in during 2013 (the other being my own 2013 TBR Pile Challenge).  I’m taking part in this one because 1) Sarah is awesome; 2) The challenge has some great twists, including selecting books based on categories within the massive “Classics” canon; and 3) it will help me make progress toward completion of my Classics Club list.
The Required Categories:
  1. A 19th Century Classic: The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
  2. A 20th Century Classic: Orlando by Virginia Woolf
  3. A Pre-18th or 18th Century Classic: Emma by Jane Austen
  4. A Classic that relates to the African-American Experience: Beloved by Toni Morrison
  5. A Classic Adventure: Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
  6. A Classic that prominently features an Animal: Henderson the Rain King by Saul Bellow

Optional Categories:

  1.    Re-read a Classic: Animal Farm by George Orwell
  2.    A Russian Classic: The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky
  3.    A Classic Non-Fiction title: A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking
  4.    A Classic Children’s/Young Adult title: The Princess Bride by William Goldman
  5.    Classic Short Stories: Welcome to the Monkey House by Kurt Vonnegut

Beauty In Words🌹

You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence. Octavia E. Butler
