Classics Challenge 2010 Complete!

You can read all the details of the challenge at the The Classics Challenge Blog. I started this a bit late, but I still aimed for the top level of 6 classics and I am already finished! 

The great thing about this challenge was that it acknowledged that there are many different definitions of a classic book. It also encourages you to consider what your idea of a classic is by providing suggestions for classics that a beginner might like to read and an idea for a book that might become a future classic. 

I suggested that a beginner might like to start with The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald, and the We Were the Mulvaneys by Joyce Carol Oates might one day be considered a classic. I completed the top level of Classic Feast - 6 books:

The Portrait of a Lady by Henry James
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
The Timeless Land by Eleanor Dark
The Turn of the Screw by Henry James
Flatland by Edwin A Abbott
The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka

I am sure that I will read many more by the end of the challenge. Join in the challenge if you love classics!


  1. Congrats on completing the challenge! I read We Were Mulvaneys several years ago and remember being wowed by it. I could certainly see that becoming a classic one day.

  2. I already have too many challenges going for this year, but I am definitely going to consider signing up for this next year!

  3. Congrats on finishing the challenge. I am participating too. I think I finished it but your post reminds me to check and do a post about it myself.

    I haven't read ANY of your classics! There are so many great ones out there!

  4. Thanks everyone. Its hard to keep up with all the challenges that are around so its a nice to finally finish another one!

  5. I finished today too, but I only did the Classics Snack (4) because my reading list is getting out of hand!

  6. Hey Becky--you did finish fast! Congrats. :) I'm glad you enjoyed the challenge and feel free to continue to leave your links throughout the remainder of the challenge.
