Read up to 5 books considered literary or modern classics.

This page is a good reference for books in the "Classics" genre.

Connie's Classics:

1)The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain 11/06/18 (I had a chuckle when I opened this book to read and it was my maiden name written inside - I've been married for 39 years. I bought this book when I was still a teenager - long ago!)
2)To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee 13/11/18 ( one of my favourite rereads!)
3)The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain 28/11/18
4)The Winter of Our Discontent by John Steinbeck 13/12/18
5)

Did you like it? I read it last year. It was different, but I liked it.


message 17: by Kate (new)

Kate Fall | 40 comments I liked it enough to read it very quickly. I feel so bad for Constance, though. Is she happy? And why did Uncle Julian think that Merricat was dead? How is that even possible? There was a lot to read between the lines!

Hi Rebecca, you've got this one under "Prize Winners", too. Do you want to move it here under "Classics", or leave it where it is?

Geez. I can't keep them straight. Since I've re-read the whole series, I'll just pop a different one in here :)

Hi Rebecca, you have this one under Classics and Prize Winners. Which category do you want to use?

Sigh. Leave it with the prizes, and I'll take it off here. I need a better way to keep track.

P.S. I still didn't like it that much :)

Hi Linda, you've already listed Amos Fortune under Prize Winners, so it can't be used in this category. Thank you!

Gina Wilkinson | 2 comments 1) The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood.
2)Charlotte's Web - E.B White - read with my kids. Just as good as I remembered...and still needed a Kleenex at the end.
I have a feeling numbers 3, 4,and possibly 5 will all be kids books as I've just dug out The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy with the plan of moving on to them as soon as the kiddos finish the Harry Potter series

Hey Stephanie, I had read another prize winner so I removed Amos Fortune from Prize Winners and added it to classics. I was also going to remove A Wrinkle in Time from Science Fiction and move it to classics. Is that not okay? Once I assign it to a category, it needs to stay there?

Sorry, I did a lookup on my spreadsheet but didn't go back and check to see if you'd moved anything. You CAN move things if need be. Maybe drop me an email on changes so I can update the spreadsheet? That's how I keep track of who's read what and how many we've read.
