Rebecca from Rebecca Reads is hosting the Really Old Classics Challenge. Rebecca writes:
Children 2,000 years ago read and memorized Virgil and Homer, and Aesop’s Fables were common knowledge. Even 200 years ago these classics were widely read. Now, there are thousands of new books published each year. But what about those really old ones? Have we read those yet? Any of them?The rules are pretty straight forward:
- Choose how many Really Old Classics you’d like to read by the end of July 2009, from 1 to 100.
- Read that number of Really Old Classics by the end of July 2009. If you finish, pat yourself on the back.
