Back to the Classics Challenge 2011

Here is my first challenge for 2011.  I was just thinking to myself the other day that I wanted to spend 2011 reading classics.  I've read lots of classics, but since I finished my M.A., I've really been concentrating on more contemporary books.  So, I'm excited to go back to the classics in 2011.

To sign up.

Here is my list:

A Banned Book: Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
A Book with a Wartime Setting: Ernest Hemingway, For Whom the Bell Tolls
A Pulitzer Prize Winner:  Wallace Stegner, Angle of Repose
A Children's/Young Adult Classic: Louisa May Alcott, Little Women
19th Century Classic:  Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights
20th Century Classic: Herman Hesse, Narcissus and Goldmund
A Book You Think Should Be Considered a 21st Century Classic: David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas
Reread a Book from High School/College: Fyodor Dostoevsky, Crime and Punishment


  1. Thank you so much for joining! I like the list you've put together... I'm still not sure what I'm going to read yet!

  2. Wow, that's quite proactive of you...sounds like a great plan! I've also signed up for this challenge. Good luck :)

  3. Great list! I almost put For Whom The Bell Tolls, it's a Hemingway I have a copy of but haven't read yet. I may change and add some Russian lit.

    Should be fun to hear how everyone does!
