Join us for this year's challenge ouHow many people can be inspired to read at least one classic this year? How many classics can we read as a group?

The idea for this challenge came from my cousin Scott, a high school English teacher, who created this for anyone who wants to read a classic story, play, or book of poetry before next January.
By accepting the challenge, you commit to finishing at least one book this year. We'll tally up all the titles and books in January, and see what kind of literary contribution we’ve made to society that year. Scott's been thinking about a way to take English Literature education out of the classroom, and to give you an incentive to read that book that you’ve always meant to read, but never gotten around to reading. Why not give it a go?

- Reading Groups
- Fun statistics & updates
Logging a Book:
When you finish a classic book, please post the following to the feed: Title, Author, Year of Original Publication, Number of Pages, and Your State or Country. You may also post analysis, critique, or questions about the book if you wish.
Please include your state or country in 1-2 posts or message a moderator individually, so that we can track the global reach of the group.
We are tracking the submissions and will keep you updated on the progress throughout the year.
