Thinking I have room for another year-long reading challenge, I am joining this one. Many of my choices are surpluses from other challenges: if I had multiple books listed in a category, they were inserted here so that every book has a better chance of being read. I don't want any book to feel excluded, in case books have feelings.
The rules: HERE!
The categories and my choices (as I hope to cover all twelve):
1. A 19th Century Classic - Dracula (1897), by Bram Stoker
2. A 20th Century Classic - The Grapes of Wrath (1939), by John Steinbeck
3. A Classic by a Woman Author - Persuasion (1927), by Jane Austen
5. A Very Long Classic Novel - East of Eden (1952), by John Steinbeck
6. A Classic Novella -- Metamorphosis (1915), by Frank Kafka
7. A Classic with a Person's Name in the Title - Robinson Crusoe (1719), by Daniel Defoe
8. A Humorous or Satirical Classic - Lord of the Flies (1954), by William Golding
9. A Forgotten Classic - A Journal of the Plague Year (1722), by Daniel Defoe
10. A Nonfiction Classic - Life on the Mississippi (1883), by Mark Twain Cannot finish
11. A Classic Children's Book - Wind in the Willows - Kenneth Grahame (1908)
12. A Classic Play - "A Doll's House," by Henrik Ibsen (1879)
