A few weeks ago, I joined Jillian and her Classics Club. She has also introduced me to a Victorian Celebration hosted by A Literary Odyssey. The goal is to read Victorian writers during June and July of this summer. Since I am attempting to read ten Dickens novels this year and I’ve only read three, odds are I will be reading some of his novels this June and July. However you aren’t limited to novels. You can read biographies on Queen Victoria or any of the writers from the time period. I don’t know which novels I will read yet. If I finish David Copperfield in May, I may be reading Bleak House in June and Hard Times in July. This would work out perfectly since the latter novel is much smaller and I will be out of town part of July.
There will be prizes. And if you sign up before May 1st, you can win another prize. If you are interested in the celebration and/or would like to follow along please check out the site. It is always fun to have a group of people to discuss novels with. Here’s to a fun summer!
I know I have signed up for many reading challenges this year. To help keep myself organized I have created a page for the challenges to keep track of my progress or lack of progress.
