A Classics Challenge – admitting defeat

Well, there is no use beating around the bush – I failed in my attempt to read lots more classics during 2012, despite signing up to November Autumns’ A Classics Challenge.

The challenge goal was to read at least 7 classics during 2012 and respond to the question/discussion held at Katherine’s blog on the 4th of each calendar month as often as possible.

Why did I fail? Too many excellent review books arriving in my inbox/mailbox!

Did I read any classics during 2012?

Yes. The two titles I managed to read, I enjoyed immensely.

A Room With A View by E M Forster

The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

In 2013 I am going to make a concerted effort to find more time for titles that have been on my TBR pile and library wishlist for far too long.

These include quite a few classics. So while I am not going to sign up to a challenge specifically for classics in 2013, I do hope to be listing more classics in my 2013 end of year round up!
