Back to the Classics Challenge Wrap-up

I finished this challenge on October 27!

Karen at Books and Chocolate has been running the Back to the Classics Challenge for the last couple of years.    This year, she gave us 12 categories, but they are not all required: you can choose six, nine, or twelve and still count as complete.  I chose to do 12 books and here they are:

2.  A 20th Century Classic -- The Makioka Sisters, by Junichiro Tanizaki (1957, English trans.)
3.  A Classic by a Woman Author. Wives and Daughters, by Elizabeth Gaskell
7.  A Classic with a Person's Name in the Title-- Agnes Grey, by Anne Bronte
8.  A Humorous or Satirical Classic. -- Three Men in a Boat, by Jerome K. Jerome
9.  A Forgotten Classic. Street of the Crocodiles, by Bruno Schulz

10.  A Nonfiction Classic.  The White Goddess, by Robert Graves
11.  A Classic Children's Book. The Jungle Book, by Rudyard Kipling
12.  A Classic Play. -- King Lear, by William Shakespeare

Challenge complete!  


  1. Congratulations! They all look like very good choices. I can't believe that 2015 is almost done and we have to get prepared for the 2016 challenges!

  2. Well, not a surprise that I know only four titles on your list.

    Good for you!

  3. Congrats on completing the entire challenge. I've been eyeing Bruno Schulz, and after reading your review, I'm even more curious now to read him. Maybe for the 2016 challenge...

  4. Oh yeah, give him a try! Spread the Bruno Schulz weirdness...
