I just stumbled upon this wonderful reading challenge.
You have to choose classic books to read in 5 different categories, and write reviews of them - and what do I mostly do at this blog anyway? You named it.
Also I have this long lists of big classics that I really want to read (or that my friends tell me I have to read if I call myself a lover of classics), so now instead of just saying I will read them someday I put up a deadline.
But no pressure - 2014 is still young.
If you want to participate in the challenge you can still sign up until February 28. at this blog.
