A Classic Summer

My friend Molly of both The Bumbles Blog and Quirky Girls Read is hosting a challenge.  And since Molly is fun, creative and just all around great, I thought I would join in and invite you to do the same.

She couldn’t have made the challenge any easier.  Read a classic book before Labor Day, review it (linking to Molly’s challenge post) and add your post to Mr. Linky.  And you can enter as many classics as you want!

Did I mention she’s giving out an Amazon gift card?  You should probably head over there and check it out for yourself!

The Classic Bribe

I am currently reading A Room with a View by Forster (and loving it) and hope to get Emma by Austen in this summer too.  I also need to read Roots and Mists of Avalon.  What about you?  Is there a classic that you’d like to read this summer and this challenge is just the thing to give you a gentle push?

    I loved A Room with a View! And Emma too!
    I’m planning to re-read North and South this summer – the book as well as the mini-series are both amazing!

      Love Jane Eyre and heven’t read it in years. I need to do a re-read. I do watch the movies and love seeing all of the different adaptations.

    A Room with A View is wonderful! I hope you’re enjoying it! And definitely read Emma! It will make you laugh & it’s a great choice for a summer read.

    I’m going to read one of Elizabeth Gaskell’s books, i think or maybe Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen and most definitely, Candide!

      I have Northanger Abbey too so I look forward to seeing what you think. It seems like Austen lovers always talk about the other ones, but not that one.

    I have been going back and forth with this challenge. Not sure I can fit one in before then. Loved Room with a View, and watched the BBC version last year as well. Mists of Avalon was awesome too! Hope you enjoy them and happy reading 🙂

      I’ll have to look for the BBC version of A Room with a View. Thank you so much for voting for it – Loved It!
