Welcome to the official LT Classics Challenge Page FAQ!
What is the challenge? The Challenge is currently on hiatus, but, when active, we read a major literary classic over the course of two weeks. Discussion questions to guide reading are posted on Fridays, and the questions are discussed the following Friday.
Where can I find the book list? Right here! When the Challenge is active, the book list can be found here. In the meantime, we also have a list of our past Challenge book selections so you can see what’s already been discussed in past Challenges.
What do Challenge participants get? Each loyal participant is entered in a drawing for the Penguin Clothbound Classic of LT’s choice. If the response is overwhelming, we might decide to sweeten the deal even further, so participating could pay off for you!
How long does the Challenge last? However long we want :) Generally, it will either be suspended or renewed on a roughly quarterly basis.
How are these books chosen? Kate or Corey chooses them, based mainly on books they haven’t read but feel they should have. Therefore, the list is pretty subjective. If there’s a book that’s not on the list that you feel should be, drop us a line below!
How can I join? Two ways: First, you can simply check the book list for our current read, read it or refresh your memory, and then comment on the discussion post. Alternatively, if you are a fellow book blogger, you may take the discussion questions and write your own response post! Just make sure to link back to LT and comment on our Friday discussion post with a link to yours. And feel free to use the badge below on your blog!
