Back to the Classics Challenge 2015

      2 Comments on Back to the Classics Challenge 2015

The Back to the Classics Challenge was a fun motivator when I participated a few years back, so it seemed like a no-brainer to sign up again. It’s now hosted by Books and Chocolate and is organized a little differently. There’s now a draw at the end of the year for an Amazon gift certificate, and you enter by completing categories – six categories will amount to one entry, nine categories for two entries, and all twelve categories for three entries.

The choices below may also be changed throughout the year.

  1. A 19th Century ClassicThe War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells
  2. A 20th Century ClassicThe Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler
  3. A Classic by a Woman AuthorTo Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  4. A Classic in TranslationEugene Onegin by Alexander Pushkin
  5. A Very Long Classic NovelFor Whom the Bell Tolls by Earnest Hemingway
  6. A Classic NovellaThe Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka
  7. A Classic with a Person’s Name in the TitleAdventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
  8. A Humorous or Satirical ClassicA Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole
  9. A Forgotten ClassicThe Poison Belt by Arthur Conan Doyle
  10. A Nonfiction ClassicTravels with a Donkey in the Cevennes by Robert Louis Stevenson
