LT Classics Challenge Liiiiives!

January 28, 2010 at 11:19 am 2 comments

Finally, LT is reviving the Classics Challenge! For those of you who don’t remember, the idea is that we will read an established “classic” work in one week, and discuss it at the end. On Tuesdays, we’ll post a list of questions to guide the discussion of the book, which will be posted on Thursdays.

Again, those of you who comment on/participate in at least one discussion this month will be entered in a drawing for a beautiful Penguin Clothbound Classic. Here is the list of the books we will be reading next month, and the dates we’ll be discussing them:

Nine Stories by J. D. Salinger — February 4

The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins — February 11

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde — February 18

A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens — February 25

Those of you looking to participate in next week’s discussion should start reading Nine Stories (in honor of J. D. Salinger’s demise) as soon as possible! Questions will be posted on Tuesday, February 2.

Happy reading!

    Okay, no offense to the last Classics Challenge, but I am so much more excited about these books! I may skip the Salinger (heh), but count me in for Wilkie and Wilde! :D

      By all means, skip the Salinger! I remember he is not quite your cup of tea anyway, but you know what a fan I am and since he died I figured the least I could do would be to put him in here!

      Yes, this month is quite Victorian-heavy! Next month I might have to stay with the Victorians (so much to read and so little time, ya know), but I will try my best to throw in some female authors. Mrs Gaskell is a must!
