A classic lady...


Also new this month The Classics Challenge 2008! We all know I am working on become much more versed in the classics and so this is the perfect opportunity to work on that! I have chosen Option 1. Read five classics between July 1 and December 31. Period. And I'm going to be adding the bonus (a book chosen from the participant's list of "will be classics one day") as well. Now I'm crossing over a bit with my list from the Decades Challenge (see sidebar), but there will be two not from any other challenge, but off the Penguin Classics list, as well as the bonus.

My books:

Little Woman: Louisa May Alcott
Daisy Miller: Henry James
Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde: Robert Louis Stevenson
Adolphe: Benjamin Constant
The Adventures of David Simple: Sarah Fielding
*BONUS* American Gods: Neil Gaiman

I think The Librarian will be proud I'm trying to read Gaiman.

I'm planning on this one, too. I don't know why I'm having such a hard time deciding on my list! Too many to choose from, I think.

Good luck on this and the Summer Reading Challenge!

I'll be reading Gaiman for the bonus round as well. :)

Thanks for joining the challenge and have a great time with these reads. I've heard great things about Jeckyll and Hyde.
