A Classic Stands the Test of Time.
We’re starting off our year of reading with the best: The Classics! This month we’ll be picking a classic book that we never read. After several discussions with friends, it seems most of us have a book that we’ve always meant to read but never got to it. And, the great thing about classics is that there are so many genres to choose from – historical, sci-fi, romance, etc. For our purposes, I’m using the term “classic” rather loosely. Need some ideas? These links will start you on the right path.
It’s tragic how many classics I missed through out my education. I’ve been working hard to remedy the issue. In recent years, I’ve read and enjoyed Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith, Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell.
This month I’ll be reading: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. I’ll admit, I’m a little scared of this book, but the timing must be right because it keeps popping up in my readings. When that happens, I take note. Also, I hate not understanding the references. I’m glad January is a long month! Wish me luck!
Please comment with the book you’ll be reading – for accountability and for the exchange of information and ideas. Plus, it’ll be fun to get to know each other over the course of this challenge.
We’ll check back at the end of the month to comment on the books we read.
