Back to Classics Challenge 2015

These books must come from my TBR pile I already own.

The Goal - to read a minimum of six classics between 1 Jan - 31 Dec 1015 .

The Categories

1. A 19th Century Classic — any book published between 1800 and 1899.

2.  A 20th Century Classic – any book published between 1900 and 1965.  
     Just like last year, all books must have been published at least 50 years ago to qualify 
     as a classic.

3.  A Classic by a Woman Author.  The Awakening by Kate Chopin

4.  A Classic in Translation.

5.  A Very Long Classic Novel — a single work of 500 pages or longer.

6.  A Classic Novella — any work shorter than 250 pages.

7.  A Classic with a Person’s Name in the Title.  

8.  A Humorous or Satirical Classic.

9.  A Forgotten Classic.  This could be a lesser-known work by a famous author, or a classic
      that nobody reads any more.

10.  A Nonfiction Classic.  A memoir, biography, essays, travel, this can be any nonfiction
 work that’s considered a classic, or a nonfiction work by a classic author.

11.  A Classic Children’s Book.

12.  A Classic Play.
