I didn’t set a numerical reading goal this year. I’ve burnt out on numbers it seems. But, after a 12 page thread on the Ambleside Online forum, I decided to join the Back to the Classics challenge run by Books and Chocolate. So this is my probable list:
- Nineteenth Century: Westward Ho!*
- Twentieth Century: Christopher Columbus, Mariner*
- Woman Author: Emma
- Translated: Promise of Fidelity* There are a couple translations, I linked the one I’ll be reading.
- Non-white Author: Things Fall Apart
- Adventure: Paradise Lost* (in progress) I like Dover because they are cheap and I don’t feel bad for writing in them.
- Fantasy: Fierce Wars and Faithful Loves*
- Detective: Father Brown
- Title=Place: Utopia* You want Paul Turner’s translation.
- Banned: Hamlet* (in progress)
- Reread: Old Man and the Sea OR Little Women
- Short Stories: The Pink Fairy Book This is the edition I own.
* Book being discussed on the AO Forums.
So, there we go! Who else has set a reading goal of sorts?
