2015 Classics Challenge

Classics Challenge

As the year comes to a close, we both came to the shocking realization that we’ve allowed our classics on our TBR shelf to get a bit out of hand.  To provide ourselves with some incentive to get a head start on these, we’ve decided to join the Grown-Up YA’s 2015 Classics Challenge.  To participate in the challenge, each of us will pre-select one classic to read per month.  We’ll have to stick to this schedule throughout the year to successfully complete the challenge.  Wish us luck!
