I had a lot of fun reading these classic novels; I met some interesting characters and discovered some authors that I definitely want to read again. Best of all, I no longer have to feel guilty whenever I see these seven books sitting on my shelves. So, here's a big thanks to Karen at Books and Chocolate for organizing and hosting this challenge. It was a lot of fun.
Seven books from your TBR shelf, that's great! I enjoyed this challenge as well but I had to look beyond my own shelves to fill in all the categories. You also came up with some lesser-known and interesting choices. Congrats!ReplyDelete
Thanks! I wish I could have finished all 12 categories, but I ran out of steam towards the end of the year. But maybe next year. :)Delete
Congrats on having read 7 great books! Actually I've only read two on your list, Cranford (which I love) and Miss Marjoribanks (which I also really enjoyed).ReplyDelete
Happy reading in 2016.
Same to you. :)Delete
Are you joining again in 2016? :)ReplyDelete
It depends...I've signed up for two other reading challenges, and while I love reading the classics, three challenges might be too many for me. :)Delete
