Back to the Classics Challenge 2011

January 1 - June 30, 2011

Sarah from Sarah Reads Too Much is hosting the Back to the Classics Challenge in 2011. She writes:
I am constructing this challenge to encourage myself to read more Classic Literature... you know, all those books that we want to read "someday". Well, the time is now. I hope you will join me!
  • This challenge is open to anyone who would like to participate.
  • You can join in at any point.
  • If you do not have a blog of your own, you can leave comments on the post about the challenge.
  • You can list you book choices before the challenge starts, or as you go along.... whatever works best for you.
The goals to complete the challenge:
  1. A Banned Book
  2. A Book with a Wartime Setting (can be any war)
  3. A Pulitzer Prize (Fiction) Winner or Runner Up: a list can be found here
  4. A Children's/Young Adult Classic
  5. 19th Century Classic
  6. 20th Century Classic
  7. A Book you think should be considered a 21st Century Classic
  8. Re-Read a book from your High School/College Classes
Books in this Challenge can be used toward other challenges as well, but there must be 8 different books for these goals.
