Challenges and Goals for 2015

A Challenge for 2015

I continue to think about books and goals for 2015. I want to set up some structure but not too much. If I have too much I won't do it. It will be stressful. In reading many blogs from my blogroll I have come across this challenge and I really like it. It only involves 6 books minimum for the year, it would apply to my Century of Books as well and I can use my TBR books I own.

The main priority for 2015 is the TBR dare. I am going to really get stuck into books on my shelves. This could fit in nicely as I have a pile of Penguins Classics and Penguin Modern Classics. 

So I think now what is setting up to be pretty firm reading goals for 2015 is:  TBR books, Continuing with my Century of Books and this Back To The Classics Challenge. 

I am looking forward to the new year and reading all these beautiful books I own.  

Are any of you doing any challenges for 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.

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.
