The Year of the Classics and a Giveaway!
No…I’m not talking about classic cars, or music classics such as the Beatles or The Rolling Stones, or classics as pertains to vintage clothing.
I’m talking about books.
I think 2013 is going to be the year that I “read the Classics”!
You can get them for free online and yet I go out and buy books when I could read these? What am I thinking?
There must be a reason these books have been read by countless generations, right?
Pride and Prejudice
The Scarlett Letter
A Tale of Two Cities
The Great Gatsby
The War of the Worlds
Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea
Adventures of Don Quixote
The Last of the Mohicans
Little Lord Fauntleroy
The Red Badge of Courage
A Christmas Carol
The Brothers Karamazov
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
The Count of Monte Cristo
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
The Phantom of the Opera
War and Peace
Journey to the Center of the Earth
How many of those listed above have you read? Which would you recommend?
I have read these…
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
The Secret Garden
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
So I guess it’s going to be a busy year for me in 2013 because I do of course, have a stack of books by my reading chair that I have already bought that I have to get through also. Not to mention the ones I read for my online book club From Left to Write!
And speaking about the From Left to Write book club, we are hosting an awesome giveaway just in time for Christmas gift giving. Crown Publishing has put together an amazing book bundle. There's enough to keep some for yourself and gift to others.
Go to BOOK BUNDLE GIVEAWAY to see the list of books you can win and enter!
What about you? What's on your reading list for 2013?
