The challenge is to read and review at least 6 books from 12 categories. As usual I had fun searching out the titles, most of

which came from my own bookshelves.

01. A 19th century classic: SPRINGHAVEN by R.D. Blackmore (1887)
02. A 20th century classic: PAYMENT DEFERRED by C.S. Forester (1926)

10. A classic by an author that's new to you: SYBIL by Benjamin Disraeli (1845)
11. A classic that scares you: BARNABY RUDGE by Charles Dickens (1841) - because I've tried to read it before, or WAR AND PEACE by Leo Tolstoy (1867) - because of its length.
12. Re-read a favorite classic: THE TRUMPET MAJOR by Thomas Hardy (1880) or VANITY FAIR by William Makepeace Thackeray (1848)
