Karen is once again hosting her Back To The Classics Challenge:
The complete description of her challenge is available here, but the important question is what are this year's categories and what books do I think I'll match up against them? Where possible I usually pick books from my main Classics Club list and I've done that again. I'm sure these will all get changed around again. But for now! Here's this years list of categories:
19th Century Classic
--Sir Walter Scott/Count Robert of Paris
I'm nearly out of 19th Century classics on my Classics Club list. Yikes!
20th Century Classic
--Samuel Butler/The Way of All Flesh
A Classic By A Woman Author
--Virginia Woolf/The Waves
A Classic in Translation
--Honoré de Balzac/Cousin Bette
A Classic by a Non-White Author
--James Baldwin/Go Tell It On The Mountain
A Classic by a New-to-you Author
--Henryk Sienkewicz/Quo Vadis
New-to-you Classic by a Favorite Author
--R. L. Stevenson/Black Arrow
A Classic About An Animal, or With An Animal In The Title
--Henry James/The Wings of The Dove
A Children's Classic
Not entirely sure here. The Wind In The Willows, The Once and Future King, or Howard Pyle's Men of Iron are possibilities, though they would all be rereads.
A Humorous Classic
How is it I have no funny books left on my Classics Club list!? I've left all the serious stuff to the end? Except for one...
A Travel or Adventure Classic
--R. L. Stevenson/Travels With A Donkey
A Classic Play
--George Bernard Shaw/Major Barbara
The one funny book left on my list.
Which look good to you?
Thanks to Karen for hosting another year!
