Here's how it works:
The challenge will be exactly the same as last year, 12 classic books, but with slightly different categories. You do not have to read 12 books to participate in this challenge!

2. A 20th Century Classic - By the Shores of Silver Lake, by Laura Ingalls Wilder
3. A classic by a woman author - Middlemarch, by George Eliot
4. A classic in translation.
5. A classic by a non-white author.
6. An adventure classic - did a reread of Robert Louis Stevenson's incomparable Treasure Island.
7. A fantasy, science fiction, or dystopian classic. Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
8. A classic detective novel.
9. A classic which includes the name of a place in the title. The Small House at Allington, by Anthony Trollope - book 5 in the Barsetshire novels.
10. A classic which has been banned or censored.
11. Re-read a classic you read in school (high school or college). Emma by Jane Austen
12 .A volume of classic short stories - Christmas with Anne and Other Holiday Stories, by L.M. Montgomery
I am really looking forward to another year of wonderful classics--both new and rereads.
Happy New Year, fellow Classics lovers!
