Who doesn’t love a reading challenge? You may have chosen the traditional Goodreads one or the incredibly clever Pop Sugar Challenge. I think I have both on my radar but browsing on my Amazon Prime Reading I saw an interesting selection of classics. At first instance I thought why bother if I know these stories. But do I? This gave me the idea to spend the first few months of the year reading the obvious classics I’ve never read. Here is my list so far:
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer – Mark Twain
The Wizard of Oz – L. Frank Baum
Journey to the Centre of the Earth – Julius Verne
The Jungle Book – Rudyard Kipling
The Arabian Nights – Andrew Lang
I will write short reviews of each one of these titles, but if you think I’m missing a really obvious jewel, please get in touch and I’d be happy to add it to the reading list.
