Classics Challenge

I'm joining the Classics Challenge, which consists of reading 5 classics between January and the end of February. Here's my list.

1. The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
2. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
3. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
4. My Antonia by Willa Cather
5. Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

Wish me luck!


A new year, a new start. So why not a new blog? One of my resolutions for 2007 is to get back into reading for pleasure on a regular basis. Over the last two years, my reading has consisted mainly of textbooks and assigned readings for class, and it's time to change that! I have two semesters left of college, and then that's it. I hoping that by blogging my book list, it will keep me motivated.

"Oh, magic hour, when a child first knows she can read printed words!"
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, 1943

"To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled out is a spark."
— Victor Hugo, Les Miserables
