Classic Literature Challenge

Another book challenge:

Although I’ve been an avid reader almost all my life, this is one area where I’ve been a bit negligent. I managed to avoid most of the reading I was supposed to do in high school (thanks to Cliff’s Notes), and now there are a lot of books I feel I “should” have read, but I haven’t. So, I would like to read more of them.

I like to make my goals quantifiable when possible (so I know when I’ve completed one) . . . so, I’m going to challenge myself to read 12 classic novels (one per month this year, unless I get speedy and read them more quickly).

I’m planning to start with “Phantom of the Opera,” which I checked out from the library earlier this afternoon.



ETA: A LIST (or the start of one, anyway)! :)

Phantom of the Opera
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
The Scarlett Pimpernell
Northanger Abbey
Jane Eyre
Oliver Twist
Portrait of a Lady
Around the World in 80 Days
