I just found out about the Back to the Classics Challenge hosted by Books and Chocolate . If you'd like to join, click the link above by the end of March to sign up! You can also read the rules and descriptions of each category.
I have been SO BAD about reading the classics for the past year-and-a-half! I think this challenge will get me back to crossing books off of my master list for the Classics Club!
