20.4 - GOLDEN OLDIES - Tien's task: My Big Classic Books Year

I have been tackling all those big classic books in the past year:

War and Peace at 1,273 pages
Don Quixote at 961 pages
Poor Fellow My Country at 1,443 pages
Swann's Way at 519 pages (I'm currently reading this one now)

No books with the main page genre Childrens or Kids may be used. Books with the main page genre "Sequential Art," "Graphic Novel," "Comics," "Comic Book," or "Manga" may be used.

This is a one book task. Choose one option from those below and read one book that fits that task.

Required: State which option you used when you post.

Option 1: Countries
All 4 books have been set in 4 different countries. For this option, read a book with one of following MPGs:

Cultural > Russia
Cultural > Spain
Cultural > Australia
Cultural > France

Option 2: Publishing year
For this option, read a book that was first published between 1605 - 1975 (inclusive)

Option 3: Imprints
I tend to go for Vintage classics books or if they're Aussie classics, A&R Classics
For this option, read a book from one of these lists:

Vintage Classics Red Spine
A & R Classics

Please be careful with your picks as some books on these lists will not fit with SRC page requirements.

Required: Indicate the list and page on which your books can be found.
