You don't have to complete the entire board to get a Bingo. Choose any level for your challenge & have fun.

Veronique | 962 comments Great list, and start.
I’ve been toying with wanting to read The Prince...


message 4: by Lotte (new)

Lotte | 196 comments I've always been a bit intimidated by The Prince, so great start.

I'd recommend Antigone as a classic tragedy. And maybe The Unbearable Lightness of Being as a European classic?

Thanks for your suggestion! I have already read "Antigone". I'm going to take "The Unbearable Lightness of Being", though, but for a different category.

That is next on my list. I'm going to try to do the second level with the inner 9.
