Back to the Classics challenge update

As a part of my year-long challenge of reading 100 books,  I have also decided to read classics. I am defining the term classics rather broadly, as I have read one of the oldest texts in existence 🙂

Here is the list of challenges and the books I have read, am reading or intend to read.

Green is done, blue is in progress 🙂

  1. A 19th-century classic: Arthur Conan Doyle – The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.
  2. A 20th-century classic:  want to read a portrait of the artist as a young man by James Joyce, and a room with a view by E.M. Forster. 
  3. A classic by a woman author: Jane Austen – Northanger Abbey
  4. A book  in translation: The book of tea
  5. A children’s classic: Winnie the Pooh (I am going to “cheat” with this one, as I have the audiobook, with Stephen Fry as 
  6. A classic crime story: Ellery Queen – Roman Hat mystery

  8. A classic with a single-word title: Cranford or Ivanhoe.
  9. A classic with a color in the title: The Scarlet Pimpernel!
  10. A classic by an author that’s new to you: no idea still, may check the list that is going around on Instagram for a book to read 🙂
  11. A classic that scares you: The epic of Gilgamesh (this one was SO amazing!)
  12. Re-read a favorite classic: Can’t choose, have so many favorites 🙂
