2021 Reading Classic Books Challenge

I have several requests to bring the Reading Classic Books Challenge back for 2021, and I am here to oblige. I’m glad that you enjoyed the challenge. How many times have you said that you need to read more classic books? If at any point you’ve made this claim, then this challenge is for you.

Welcome to the 2nd year of the Reading Classic Books Challenge! I am super excited about this challenge and hope you’ll join me throughout the year in reading more classics.

The Virtual Wheel Has Spun

The virtual Classics Club wheel was spun and it landed on lucky number

I was on pins and needles hoping the number picked would be a book I was anxious to read. Now, please take note I’m not ashamed to admit that I didn’t fully think this through, so I had to do some quick thinking/improvising/manipulating of the my list.

Woman what are you babbling about? You might be asking. Well, in my haste and excitement for creating my TBR for the Reading Classic Books challenge I’m hosting I only listed 12 books for the challenge prompts and neglected to come up with an additional 8.
