There's something to be said about older authors! It is definitely easier to find copies of their books, if not on paper at least online thanks to Project Gutenberg. That's how I read some of the books for this challenge.
I must admit that it wasn't an easy challenge to complete, I read Jane Eyre fairly early but then I got into other challenges and this one stayed a bit behind. I also have to say the rereading Emma was a bit of a chore, I just don't find her as compelling as P&P or Persuasion and that's why I decided to leave my rereading of Mansfield Park for another time. I love Austen but these are my two least favourite of her books.
I had initially planned to read 6 books but, since I had a few problems with it and you only need 4 to consider the challenged completed I am going to leave it at 5.
Hopefully next year I'll do better...
I usually use Project Gutenberg to write the tests for my students. If they have to analyze a passage from a classic novel, I don't have to type it: I just copy and paste from that site. Very useful! Is this challenge repeated next year? I'd like to take part. My favourite writers are 18 and 19 women writers!Have a nice day, Ana.ReplyDelete
Maria Grazia I had never thought about that but it does seem brilliant for whenever I want to quote a book. ;-)ReplyDelete
Yes there will be a new one, see here http://blbooks.blogspot.com/2009/11/18th-and-19th-century-women-writers.html
I can't wait to see your choices!
Have a good day and if we don't talk more have a Happy New Year!
You did great Ana! :) I was lucky enough to find all my selected books through the library but for the 2010 version of the challenge I will have to use Project Gutenberg.ReplyDelete
