The Classics Challenge

Trish has started the Classics Challenge sign up. The Challenge runs from July - December and there are several challenge/reading options but I think I will stick to the first option which is to read 5 classics in the time period plus a bonus sixth book which can be chosen from the selection of "should be" classics on the challenge site.

My 6 options (at the moment!) are:

1. The Waves - Virginia Woolf

2. Howards End - E.M. Forster

3. For Love Alone - Christina Stead

4. Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte

5. Bleak House - Charles Dickens

6. Small Island - Andrea Levy

Wuthering Heights is one of my favorites--I hope you enjoy it!! Glad you'll be joining us in the challenge--have fun!

Hi Trish - glad to hear you have really enjoyed Wuthering Heights. It has been one I have tried a few times in the past (quite a few years ago) and I have just never seemed able to finish it. Hopefully this will be the time!

It took me a couple of times to read WH and now I love it. Enjoyed the 92 movie version.

Thanks Nise - It's good to hear that people have made it through WH - I'm going to make it through this time!
