Welcome to my humble little blog in the big book blogging world. By looking around you might be saying to yourself, "Wow, I see a lot of scary classics on here. Is she crazy?" I assure you that I am quite sane most of the time, but I do love the classics and that, my friends, is the primary focus of my blog and the mini-challenge that brought you here.
For this mini-challenge, all you need to do is leave a comment here with the answer to these big scary questions:
What is your favorite "classic" and why? How has that classic impacted your life?
Now you might be asking, "Allie, what do I get if I win?"
I'll tell you.
Those pretty books up there are Penguin Clothbound classics and I absolutely love them. I own the set and have been gushing about them since I bought my first one over a year ago.
There will be two winners, both who will be randomly chosen based on random.org. Depending on how many entries and how much you all gush over your classic love, I will pull a third winner. Each winner will get to choose their title of choice from the following list:
- Little Women
- Pride and Prejudice
- Sense and Sensibility
- Jane Eyre
- Wuthering Heights
- Alice in Wonderland
- The Woman in White
- A Christmas Carol and Other Christmas Writings
- Great Expectations
- Oliver Twist
- The Hound of the Baskervilles
- Tess of D'Urbervilles
- The Odyssey
- Lady Chatterley's Lover
- Shakespeare's Sonnets and A Lover's Complaint
- Treasure Island
- The Picture of Dorian Gray
- Tale of Two Cities
- Gulliver's Travels
To enter, all you need to do is leave a comment with an answer to that question up there. The challenge will run for three hours. At the end of the three hours, I will randomly select the winners and make an announcement post. The winners will have until the end of the readathon to get in touch with me or I will select a new winner. This contest is open to anyone who lives in a country that the Book Depository delivers to and you should be 13+.
Good luck and start telling me about those Oldies you love!
