The Book Geek Challenges Herself
I am a book geek. I am a reader who refuses the e-reader. I love the smell of books, the feel of the pages between my fingers, and the sound of a page being turned. I could spend hours in a bookstore or library just feeling books in my hand. But for all of my love of books, I realized that I have read very few classics. Of course, I have read the classics that were assigned, but to actually pick up a classic and read it for the joy of reading it has not happened.
And so I come to you, my readers, with a noble quest. I am challenging myself to read 100 classics. I challenge my brain to stretch and conquer these sometimes hard to read troves of wisdom.
I welcome any other book lovers to join my quest and help me conquer this challenge. Come walk with me through the pages of classics, old and new, and take upon yourself the challenge of reading 100 of them with me.
