Typically British Reading Challenge


Typically British Book ChallengeYes! 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 Brontë’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).

  1. Hi! Welcome to the Typically British reading challenge, so pleased you signed up! Looking forward to seeing which books you read. I hope you have fun with the challenge! 🙂

  2. I read so many books by British authors I should do this one!

    I always think about coming up with a challenge too but there are just so many now I'm sort of overwhelmed.

    Have fun with your challenge!

  3. Thanks for the welcome, Book Chick. I still don't know which ones I will read!

    Iliana, I know how you feel. I can't think of one that's not already out there, unless maybe revisiting something you read in high school and haven't read since. Come to think of it, that might be a good idea.
