2019 CHALLENGE: Back to the Classics

Back to the Classics



I’ve been hit or miss with the Back to the Classics Challenge, hosted by Books and Chocolate. It’s a challenge I enjoy, but I often fail to sign up in time.

The idea is to read six, nine, or 12 books published more than 50 years ago, one from each of a list of categories. Other than being more than 50 years old, Karen does not strictly define a “classic” book.

I’m signing up at the six-book level, but hope to read more. I’m going to cross over several books with the European Reading Challenge that I host here on Rose City Reader.

I don't read a lot of the classics any more, but I'm glad to see they are on your reading list. Maybe it will rub off on me. :-)
