2014: Year of Classic Literature

16 Jan

As I planned in an earlier post, I have decided to dedicate much of my reading in 2014 to classic novels and stories.

Recently I have bought a few novels to begin my endeavours, to add to my miserably small collection of classics.

Some classics to get the year started!

I’ve already started Great Expectations, and my own expectations are high!

And I have come into ownership of the perfect thing for classic literature: a digital library containing over 3000 classic books, on a flashdrive shaped like a book!

A clever little compact library of timeless stories and more.

A peek at some of the titles the flashdrive offers.

A few of the authors I plan to read throughout the year include Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, the Brontë sisters, Agatha Christie, JRR Tolkien, WIlliam Shakespeare (Do plays count? I say yes!), Mark Twain, F Scott Fitzgerald, and Victor Hugo.

I will do my best to review each and every single book I read throughout the year, including those which are not classics – I can’t possibly resist the other things I have to read, so I’ll read a classic every other book or so.


In other news:

  • My Page to Screen review of the 2013 adaption of Carrie is coming shortly
  • I’m considering writing and posting a short story each month, possibly every first Sunday – Short Story Sunday!
  • One of my resolutions for the New Year is to finish writing Angelic (I’ve let my writing slip a bit, unfortunately) and send it off to a publisher
  • I am currently reading Dickens’ Great Expectations, and afterwards will finally get to cry over Rick Riordan’s The House of Hades

I think 2015 might be my Year of finishing-the-books-I-own-but-have-not-yet-read…
