Classics Challenge 2010

Classics Challenge 2010

Here I go with my first real blog post, and participating in my first challenge. So as not to be too hard on myself, I decided to do the Classics Challenge 2010 offered by Trish as I'm planning on reading a number of classics anyway.

I am going to work at the Classics Snack level and try to read 4 classics and a bonus. As of now, the four classics I plan to read are:

Ruth by Elizabeth Gaskell
Sylvia's Lovers by Elizabeth Gaskell
The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy and
Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell

My bonus book is going to be Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Shaffer and Barrows. This challenge will fit in well with my goal to read all the Gaskell works I haven't read yet; this is certainly the year of Elizabeth Gaskell for me, and I'm loving it so far!
Books finished for this challenge:
1) The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy (finished April 22)


  1. I read The Scarlet Pimpernel earlier this year and loved it! I haven't read the four other books so will be curious to read what you think.

  2. I have ordered The Scarlet Pimpernel and can't wait to start reading it! I look forward to the Gaskells too.
