Reading to Know Classics Book Club 2015

. at . Leave a comment

bookclubThe 2nd book club I am taking part in is this Reading to Know Classics Book Club hosted by Carrie at Reading to Know. Information for the other book club is here.

I came across this list in February so I obviously missed reading the January selection. So I will start with February. Although I will probably come back to the January selection after I’ve read the other books.

I have already read 6 of these books, but it will be fun to reread them because after all they are classics. And because I have read them before, I will hopefully have more to contribute to the discussion.

January – Any Lucy Maud Montgomery title of your choosing, held in conjunction with the Lucy Maud Montgomery Reading Challenge (discussion hosted by Carrie)

February – Heart of Darkness, by Joseph Conrad (Discussion hosted by Heather from Don’t Let This Universe Forget You).

March – The Pursuit of God, by A. W. Tozer (Discussion hosted by Shonya from Learning How Much I Don’t Know). I read this every year or two.

April – 1984, by George Orwell (Discussion hosted by Annette from This Simple Home). I read this in high school. I wanted to reread it, but could not get a copy from the library. I should recheck.

May – Christy, by Catherine Marshall (Discussion hosted by Stephanie from Simple Things). I read this a LONG time ago. The thickness of the book and the small print was a deterrent this time.

June – The Little Prince, by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (Discussion hosted by Amy from Hope is the Word). I read this every year or two.

July – Any Narnia book (or book about Narnia or C.S. Lewis) of your choosing. Hosted in conjunction with the Chronicles of Narnia Reading Challenge (Hosted by Carrie at Reading to Know)

August – Laddie; a true blue story, by Gene Stratton Porter (Discussion hosted by Heather from Lines from the Page). This is the first time I’ve read it and enjoyed it a lot. I look forward to reading this with my grand daughter.

September – The Screwtape Letters, by C.S. Lewis (Discussion hosted by Barbara from Stray Thoughts). I read this every year or two.

October– The Hound of the Baskervilles (Discussion hosted by Sky from Circus Caravan of My Thoughts on Things). I’ve already read this in the past several years and didn’t want to reread it.

November – Grimm’s Complete Fairy Tales. Feel free to read one or all, as you please. (Discussion hosted by Rebekah from Bekahcubed)

December– The Sherwood Ring by Elizabeth Marie Pope (Discussion hosted by Tammy from Bluerose’s Heart)

Your Turn . . .
