Over at 5 Minutes for Books they have a Classics Bookclub. It was because of them that I read Rebecca this past year. I also read at least 8 other classics this year and really enjoyed it. Some were books I had not ever read, others were books I had read in school and didn’t remember or appreciate like Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. I know that before 2009, To Kill a Mockingbird was not my favorite book, but it is now.
So, as we approach 2010 I am setting more goals. I don’t have a separate Classics category for the next year, but I have a few of them on my list.
- Pilgrim’s Progress for my church book club at the end of January – this is a reread for me
- Scaramouche by Rafael Sabatini – I just finished reading Captain Blood
- Red Badge of Courage
I also intend to read some books by these authors
- Anthony Trollope
- Chaim Potok
- Graham Greene
- Dorothy Sayers
- GK Chesterton
- Wilkie Collins
