2015 challenge: Back to the Classics

Well, this challenge was also too tempting to resist! After I got the first taste of making lists with intended reading from O, here's another one that whetted my appetite:


Karen is hosting the 2015 Back to Classics challenge, and I'm still cautious and have (only) indicated 7 categories for which I intend to read books - obviously, if all goes well, there will be more:

  1. A Classic by a Woman Author: The Tennant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë
  2. A Very Long Classic Novel:   The Moonstone by W. Collins
  3. A Classic Novella: The Invisible Man by H. G. Wells
  4. A Classic with a Person's Name in the Title: Lady Chatterley's Lover by D. H. Lawrence
  5. A Humorous or Satirical Classic:Thank you, Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse
  6. A Classic Children's Book: Charlotte's Web by E.B.White
  7. A Classic Play: A Streetcar Named Desire, by Tennessee Williams

One other category I'm interested in is the Forgotten Classic, and here I want to go through my Persephone catalogue to see which title could entice me...

  5. I have The Tenant of Wildfell Hall on my list too. And after seeing The Moonstone, I'm reminded I still have that one lying unread on my shelf!

    All the best with completing this challenge next year. ^_^
