Now that I've grown up a bit (ha!), and have a Kobo loaded with 100 classics, I decided I needed to read them. ALL of them. Daunting challenge? Yes, it is, and it's likely going to take me the rest of my life, but it's a goal I made for myself.
To keep me committed, I'm inviting you guys along for the ride! I've created a tab above listing the 100 works I will tackle. Of the 100, I have already read two pre-Kobo. BAM, 2% of the way done, and I loved them both!
Around grade 8-ish, I read Little Women. My dance recital that year was inspired by books, and my ballet dance was to Little Women. There were four of us in the class, so we got to be the four sisters. I was Jo (this was not a surprise to anyone...). Being in this dance, I was inspired to read the story, and loved it.
I read Anna Karenina for my grade 12 independent unit for English. I just had to go and choose Russian literature. It wasn't my smartest move, but I'm surprised how much I actually enjoyed the book. The setting was kind of magical, and it did have a ridiculously complex, yet romantic, plot.
Currently, I'm working on A Tale of Two Cities. Yes, we can all thank
So as I embark on my classical journey, feel free to join along, or recommend what I read next. Let's have some fun with this!
Much love, Samantha
