Girl Reading in a Landscape by Ada Thilen, 1896
I've just finished the Back to the Classics Challenge 2015 and read a total of 12 books from various categories throughout this year. My original list is here but I made a few changes (as I knew I would) as I went along. I thoroughly enjoyed this challenge and read some books I might have passed over had I not had to include specific categories.
These are the 12 books linked to my review/thoughts on each one.
1. A 19th Century Classic - A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
2. A 20th Century Classic - The Man in the Brown Suit by Agatha Christie
3. A Classic by a Woman Author - Persuasion by Jane Austen
4. A Classic in Translation - Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
5. A Very Long Classic Novel - The Keeper of the Bees by Gene Stratton-Porter
6. A Classic Novella - The Vicar of Wakefield by Oliver Goldsmith
7. A Classic with a Person's Name in the Title - Adam Bede by George Eliot
8. A Humorous or Satirical Classic - The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving
9. A Forgotten Classic - I Can Jump Puddles by Alan Marshall
10. A Nonfiction Classic - The Abolition of Man by C.S. Lewis
11. A Classic Children's Book - Bambi: a Life in the Woods by Felix Salten
12. A Classic Play - All's Well That Ends Well by William Shakespeare
