The Classics Club Challenge (6)

I haven’t posted an update for several months because there was nothing to update on. In September, though, I made a come-back in reading classics! So here’s what’s happening now…

News #1: I’ve finished Jo’s Boys by Louisa May Alcott – it was about time!

News #2: I’m currently reading The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens. I am determined to finish this by the end of November, so my plan is to read two chapters every day. I’m behind on today’s assignment – Chapter 11 and 12 – but it’s actually quite jolly. Tupman’s a melodramatic, Snodgrass has an artistic air, Winkle’s a dear and Pickwick’s sometimes so serious that I can’t make fun of him! Now I can see why Meg chose to be P and Jo the S. I’m still quite puzzled about Beth’s choice (T) and Amy’s (W). I suppose I haven’t found out more about Winkle yet to form more than a vague opinion of him.

News #3: It’s been more than a year since I joined TCC Challenge! The anniversary was supposed to take place in early October – the 7th, to be exact – but I was neck-deep in my paper-writing so that went right out the window. Now yesterday was the 13-months-anniversary, which makes today 13-months-and-a-day anniversary, I suppose. So! By now I should have read at least 10 classics to be on “schedule”. Well, I’ve read four. I’m not really worried or anxious or stressed or anything because when I entered the challenge I wanted to give myself an incentive for reading more classics, not an ulcer.

Now let’s carry on with our delightful readings that may enrich our minds and souls!
