Yes! I found a new book challenge that’s right up my alley. I’m an Anglophile, I teach British literature, and most of the reading I’ve done lately is British authors, so the Typically British Reading Challenge is perfect for me. I can’t yet tell what books I will read for this challenge (I need to think about it and peruse my shelves), but I do intend to commit to “Gordon Bennett” Level and read four “typically British” books this upcoming year.
Some early contenders for this challenge are Jasper Fforde’s Thursday Next: First Among Sequels, and Emily BrontÃ«’s Wuthering Heights, which I planned to re-read for another challenge and also because I’m teaching it this year. Aside from these two books, I’ll have to think about it.
You know, at some point, I need to come up with an idea for a Book Challenge, too. I find them to be fun ways to participate in the book blogging community (even though I don’t finish them all that often).
