I completed my first Classic: RABBIT, RUN (Updike). I rated it a 1.5/5. :(

The Superfast Reader said...

I finished my first: The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins.

Wendy said...

I actually read one of my challenge books in December, so I added a new one to my list!

I read Edith Wharton's, The Age of Innocence in December; and finished Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen in January. Very brief reviews are posted on my blog (caribousmom).

rajm said...

What's happened to the dates?! This appears to have been blogged in March 2007 - the Winter Challenge is now officially over :-)

Jill said...

I finished my first as well. Isn't it funny that, just like The Superfast Reader, it was Wilkie Collins' Moonstone? See the entry for January 6th.

booklogged said...

Joy, I'll be over to read your review. Looks like you didn't like it much with only a 1.5 rating. Hope the next one is better.

Superfast, I'm still jealous of the spead with which you read. Anxious to read your thoughts about Moonstone.

Wendy, I have no problem with you reading one of your classics in Dec and counting it, if you want to.

Rajm, the date trick is one I learned from Colleen Gleason. By predating a blog, it will stay at the top of my blog throughout the whole classics challenge, so readers don't have to waste time finding the post. I did the same thing with the one just below it.

booklogged said...

Jill, I wonder if you and superfast reader will feel similar about that the book. That's a chunkster - you must be a fast reader, too.

bookish lore said...

I've just finished my first classic The Wind in the Willows and I really enjoyed it.

I'm back to the Fellowship of the Ring (my second one). I should finish it any time now. Hopefully. :)

Alyson said...

That's quite a list. No wonder you were always on the computer :)

Heather said...

I just finished my first yesterday, Lady Audley's Secret. It was pretty good!

Stacey said...

I finished A Wrinkle in Time, now I"m passing it on to one of my children to read :)

I don't know what happened to the link... sorry.

Carl V. said...

I finished my first, Casino Royale, awhile back. Here's a link to the review:

Brandie said...

I finished my first book: Madame Bovary

Lotus Reads said...

Woo hoo, one down, four to go! I just finished "Umrao Jaan Ada", an Urdu classic, written in 1905 about a courtesan in the Royal Courts of Lucknow, India.

nessie said...

I finished my first as well: Metamorphosis. Next one coming up soon promise.

Melissa said...

I finished the Odyssey. I'm not sure I feel any smarter. :)

Wendy said...

I am struggling to read Catch-22. I am really hating this book (I know many, many people love it...but, it is just torture for me). I want to give up on it (I'm 70 pages into the book). Is it permissible to give up on one of my listed books and substitute another classic in its place? (...please, please say yes!!)
Wendy

booklogged said...

Wow! you guys are doing awesome! I'm going to be starting my first classic today - Woman in White. I feel so far behind, but I had to read a couple books for book groups. Might be quite embarassing if I don't finish my own challenge!

Wendy, don't hesitate to change one book on your list for a different one.

Wendy said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I've bagged Catch-22 (I'll be interested to see what other readers think of this book!).

I've substituted: Ethan Frome, by Edith Wharton. My blog is updated with this new information.

sheila said...

Hi! I finished Frankenstein and posted this on it:

http://www.sheilaomalley.com/archives/007375.html

I also finished Tale of 2 Cities:

http://www.sheilaomalley.com/archives/007516.html

I'm reading Gulliver's Travels now - I'll let you know when I finish it!

Joy said...

I completed my second Classic: BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S (Capote). I rated it a 3.25/5.

emasl said...

OK my first one is up. Jo's Boys by L M Alcott
(randomjottings.typepad.com)

Petunia said...

I finished Silas Marner by George Eliot. My review is here:

bookish lore said...

I've just finished The Fellowship of the Ring and I'm currently reading The Two Towers (my third in the list!)

raidergirl3 said...

I made a new blog, just for books, and am updating this challenge there. I've finished Robinson Crusoe (in December) and then The Great Gatsby and Treasure Island over the holidays, into January.
I'm slogging through On the Road right now; slow going though, because it is not grabbing me.
Oh yeah, I'm reading Moby Dick with an online group, a few pages a day. It might take more than until the end of Feb, so it won't count for this challenge but it's pretty awesome.

Lotus Reads said...

Hi booklogged!

Apparently PBS is going to be airing "Jane Eyre" (Masterpiece Theatre) on Jan 21 and 28. Check local listings. I thought fans of the book might like to watch it, I know I will be. Here's the link:

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/janeeyre/

Sara said...

I've read two of them so far.

Brave New World - Which I felt was ok, but I didn't fall in love with.

And The Quiet American, which has turned me into a Greene fan.

Melanie said...

I've read my first book of the challenge, Miss Marjoribanks by Mrs. Oliphant. A small review is on my blog. Now I'm eager to move on to The Moonstone, thanks to other readers' reviews.

Brandie said...

I finished book number 2 from my list! Yeah!
A Farewell to Arms ... nad I have to say, I did indeed fall in love with the book.

booklogged said...

Keep up the good work. Everyone is doing fabulous. I'm enjoying reading your reviews and have so many good classics added to my list.

Lotus, thanks for the heads up on the Jane Eyre movie. I've never seen the movie and it's been a long, long time since I read the book, so I'm going to be in front of my tv on those two nights.

Paula said...

Just finished my first: The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. A quick review is on my "Pieces of Me" blog.

Literary Feline said...

I'm all done with Anna Karenina, my first for the Winter Classics Challenge. I posted my thoughts on my blog. :-)

Framed said...

My first classic was "Atlas Shrugged." It was my third time, but it's still a great book. Here's the site of my reivew: http://framedandbooked.blogspot.com/2007/01/1st-chunkster-and-classics-book.html
Now I've got to read some of these other reviews.

Wendy said...

I finished The Color Purple...splendid book!! My review and thoughts are posted to my blog. I started The Grapes of Wrath yesterday and so far am really enjoying it!

Wendy

Eva said...

I finished my first, also The Moonstone. I gave it 3/5. :) More thoughts on my blog.

Literary Feline said...

I surprised myself by jumping into Fahrenheit 451 so quickly and now it's another book I can check off my Classics Challenge list. I really enjoyed it. Now I'm off to read a book for another challenge. :-)

Joy said...

I completed by third Classic: ANIMAL FARM (Orwell). I rated it a 3.25/5. Next up is LORD OF THE FLIES (Golding).

Mary said...

I've finished reading Mary Poppins, my first book for the Classics Challenge. On to The Railway Children.

Susan said...

I finished classic #1, Lady Chatterley's Lover. My scribbles about this book can be found at My Reading Adventures

aka_Nik said...

I have finished Emma and Pride and Prejudice. I'm currently working on Anna Karenina. Good luck with the spread sheet!

Janet said...

I finished my first classic: The Awakening by Kate Chopin. I wrote a brief review on my blog.

pussreboots said...

I've finished Kim:
http://pussreboots.livejournal.com/186146.html

Lotus Reads said...

Ok, I can report on two more:

Finished :The Good Earth by Pearl Buck (a post on it should be up later today)

Finished: Some Prefer Nettles by Junichiro Tanizaki (post later in the week)

3 down, 2 to go! :)

CoversGirl said...

One down, four to go -Evelina is finished. Can't hold a candle to Jane Austen but fascinating as historical research.

Lover of Books said...

Okay I finished my quite a while ago but I read Madame Bovary and hope to fit in another one really soon. lol

Brandie said...

I managed to finished my third read!
The Canterbury Tales! I really did enjoy it ... I read several parts out loud - it is much better spoken than read I thought (or maybe it's easier for me to hear the flow of the poetry when it's spoken than just read!)

rajm said...

Two down - three to go - I've completed Three Men in a Boat and The Turn of the Screw - now with the Henry James I start to leave the English Novel in my selections..

raidergirl3 said...

Well, I gave up on On the Road by Jack Kerouac.For my penance, I resolve to complete one extra book to make up for the boring, druggie, slacker-hippie fest that was On the Road
The extra book was Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. Much better, albeit, shorter. Next up for the challenge is to read Emma, and for extra credit, there are some childern's classics that I plan to read, just because I never read them. (I think I plan to read a bunch of classics this winter, especially all the short ones I can find. There are some gaping holes in my reading history)

Framed said...

I just finished The Brothers Karamazov. I'm heading over to write my review right now. BTW, I'm enjoying going to other blogs to read their reviews on the Classics they have read. What an interesting group of readers.

pussreboots said...

I've written a review for my second book, McTeague. It was a hard one to finish.

Wendy said...

http://caribousmom.blogharbor.com/blog/_archives/2007/1/19/2665019.html

Finished The Grapes of Wrath! And now I'm going to take a break from classics until February. You can read my review on The Grapes of Wrath on my blog (link above).

Wendy

Fay said...

My Classics Challenge is a trip around the world, with the first book being Rashomon and Other Stories by Ryunosuke Akutagawa, known for his contribution to Japanese short fiction.
http://historicalpresent.typepad.com/historical_present/2007/01/classics_challe.html

Paula said...

Just finished "Persuasion" by Jane Austen. Loved it!

Joy said...

I completed my fourth Classic: LORD OF THE FLIES (Golding). I rated it a 3/5. Last in line is MRS. DALLOWAY (Woolf).

SuziQoregon said...

Finished my first one - Les Miserables.

Took me 2 weeks to read the first half and one week to read the second half :-)

I don't even want to think about everything that has been left undone while I read, but the book was worth it!!

One down - 4 to go. On to Dracula :-)

sarala said...

I finished my first one:
Letters from Hawaii, by Mark Twain.
My review is up at:
http://sharala.blogspot.com/2007/01/finally-tbrclassics-book-one.html

Susan said...

Winter Classic Challenge book #2 completed! :) My thoughts about Incidents in the Life of Slave Girl will be posted on my site, My Reading Adventures, soon.

Amy said...

Finished challenge book #1 on 1-19.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Rated 4/5. I am starting #2, Silas Marner, tomorrow

Eva said...

Finished Middlemarch (number two)! It was longer than I thought: 578 pages in the Norton critical edition (translation: tiny, tiny print that normal humans can barely read).

I love it though-hopefully I'll have a review up at my site tomorrow. No promises until Thursday, though!

Jill said...

I just finished Silas Marner. My review is up at my blog.

Just a quick correction to your list of authors, titles, readers; it doesn't show me as one of the folks reading this particular title.

Melanie said...

I've finished my second Classic read, My Antonia. I'm still going along with The Moonstone but life is annoyingly getting in the way of a nice long read! Review of Willa Cather's novel at http://indextrious.blogspot.com/2007/01/reading-my-antonia.html#links

Petunia said...

Finished my second book, Agnes Grey. I have a review up at my blog already.

http://educatingpetunia.blogspot.com/2007/01/review-agnes-grey.html

Alyson said...

I've completed my first and second classics. I already have a review for Silas Marner posted, but I just finished Scarlet Pimpernel today, so it may be a few days before I write my review on it.

Bellezza said...

I finished A Tale of Two Cities last week. It's the first time I've read it, to my embarrassment, and I encourage anyone holding off to grab it. What a great story of friendship and character during the French Revolution.

Now I'm picking up Stendhal's The Red and The Black which I saw on a blog a few weeks ago. I love Classics, booklogged, and find this Challenge especially thrilling when I can be a "voyeur" on other's classic coices.

Antonia said...

I have started reading three at once (bad habit I know) and am half way through with those three...

Melissa said...

I've finished number 2: Eight Cousins. I actually enjoyed it though it was a bit preachy. My full review will eventually be up on my blog. Hopefully sometime today.

pussreboots said...

I've finished book #3, Uncle Tom's Cabin.

Shauna said...

I read The Moonstone and reviewed it here. Loved it as much as The Woman in White!

CoversGirl said...

I've just finished Fathers and Sons. I quite enjoyed it and am now looking forward to reading the next Turgenev on the list.

Faerie Rebecca said...

OK, Mrs. Dalloway is finally done; I can't seem to stop using semicolons now; it progressed so slowly and was terrible. Perhaps I'm too post-modern (or old fashioned?) for Virginia Woolfe, but I prefer my novels to have what we in the provinces call a plot I can read stream-of-consciousness drivel anywhere these days--I was expecting more. I give it a few sentences on today's blog post, but it's not much more than what I just posted here LOL Glad to be done with it is my overall review.

Vanity Fair OTOH is wrapping up today, and I'm enjoying it much more. Much easier to read, understand, and relate to, even set in Victorian England with 100 pages of footnotes.

pussreboots said...

I've finished book #4: Fighting Angel.

Bookfool said...

I've finished The Summer of My German Soldier by Bette Greene and The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. I love those snowflakes!

Framed said...

I just reviewed my third, "The Hound of the Baskervilles." It was a fun read. Here's the link:
http://framedandbooked.blogspot.com/2007/01/3rd-classic-challenge.html

Shauna said...

I just finished Peter Pan and my review is here

Joy said...

I completed my last Classic: MRS. DALLOWAY (Woolf). I rated it a 1/5. :(

verniciousknids said...

I've finished my first classic and posted about it here:

http://verniciousknids.blogspot.com/2007/01/carbon-betteredge-mere-carbon-my-good.html

Thanks for organising this challenge!

booklogged said...

Congratulations to Joy. She is the first to complete all five of her classics - and in less than a month. Way to go, Joy!

Actually, I'm impressed at how well everyone is doing. Only one more month. We can do it, right?! Right!

SuziQoregon said...

Finished my second classic: Dracula by Bram Stoker.

VERY glad I finally got around to reading the original.

nessie said...

Finished 2nd: I, Robot by Asimov.

Am 20 pages short of my third read which is the poem The Art of Love by Ovid. It should be up in a day or two.

heidijane said...

Woo-hoo! I have already finished The Woman in White, and am well on the way to finishing Martin Chuzzlewit. I'm going great guns at the moment.

Review to follow soon...

Mary said...

My second classic was The Railway Children by E Nesbit. It was outstanding, especially since I read the Folio edition, which is beautifully illustrated.

md

rajm said...

Now finished re-reading Where Angels Fear to Tread, bit of a break to read my Book Group book of the month before I return to the classics!

Lotus Reads said...

Hi, booklogged!

I have finished 3 out 5 books for the classics challenge and I would like to make a change if I may, Instead of "Palace Walk" which I am struggling with at the moment, can I read "Alice in Wonderland"? I see you are reading it, too, so it will be fun to compare notes. Also, if I read "Through the Looking Glass and what Alice Found There" would that be considered a separate read altogether or part of the same one? THanks!

Eva said...

Done with number three, Out of Africa. I enjoyed it, and will write up my thoughts tomorrow.

http://astripedarmchair.blogspot.com

Literary Feline said...

I finished reading Catch-22 last night and will be moving onto Emma the beginning of next month.

booklogged said...

Lotus, I think we should count Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass as two separate classics. Does that sound okay to you. I'm just about finished with Alice and don't think I care to read the sequel.

Everyone is doing marvelous! I hope I do better in Feb than I've done in Feb. Do you realize there are 101 people signed up to read classics?! Is that incredible, or what?!

Lotus Reads said...

Booklogged, thank you! Sounds great! I finished "Alice in Wonderland" last night and I shouldn't take too long with the "The Looking Glass...". Yes, the nonsense writing, is getting to me, too, lol, but I am curious to find out what happens in the sequel. If I have time I may go back and tackle "Palace Walk".

It's great that so many people have signed up for the classics read! Wonderful!

Janet said...

I have finished three of my classics: The Awakening, Ethan Frome, and Catch 22. I did not like Catch 22 at all. I would probably have tossed it aside if my student teacher didn't want to teach it so badly. I loved The Awakening and Ethan Frome. Two very different views of women and love.

The duck thief said...

I just finished Beowulf. A pretty good read and the language, to die for.

Here's the link to my post about it.

http://greatewhitenorth.blogspot.com/

CoversGirl said...

I've finished Liza, and now I've got only about 1 3/4 to go . . . I'm doing somethingahead of schedule for once!

Eva said...

Finished my fourth: Lady Audley's Secret

Wendy said...

I finished Northanger Abbey, by Jane Austen last night! Woo hoo! I've got one more to go to complete the challenge. I rated Northanger Abbey a 3.5/5. Not my favorite Austen novel, but worth reading.

Framed said...

I finished my fourth, "Candide." I'm thoroughly enjoying reading "The Scarlet Pimpernel," which will be my fifth.

Way to go, Joy, for getting all five done so quickly.

Jill said...

Finished my third title, Mary Barton and posted the review to my blog today (Feb 4)

Amy said...

I finished my first Pride & Prejudice on 1-19 and forgot to post and should be finishing my second(Silas Marner) today or tomorrow. I have reviewed the first and will be posting the 2nd and my site within the next couple of days.

Janet said...

I have now finished four of my classics:

1. Catch 22
2. The Awakening
3. Ethan Frome
4. O Pioneers (the most recent)

I have one more to read and that is Little Women but I picked up a mystery - Ricochet by Sandra Brown and I can't put this one down.

SuziQoregon said...

Just finished #3 Little Women this evening. Looking forward to #4 - The Three Musketeers :-)

Thanks again for sponsoring this challenge. I'm having a great time reading these.

Lover of Books said...

I've finished The Moonstone, finally. I really enjoyed it. Now forward to the last 2 classics...

Lotus Reads said...

I have completed the challenge! Booklogged thank you so much for initiating it - I have enjoyed this so much. I have now vowed to read a classic atleast once every six months - this challenge was just the motivation I needed to get back into the classics, thanks!

Framed said...

I just finished my 5th Classic, "The Scarlet Pimpernel." What a fun book. I had "Wuthering Heights" listed for Classics and Chunksters but I'm passing on it for now. I've read some interesting reviews. Are you doing this Challenge again next year?

Paula said...

Just posted my 3rd review ~ Anne's House of Dreams by L.M. Montgomery on my Pieces of Me site. Delightful read...

iliana said...

I've only read one of my classics, Emma, I'm doing so bad. Oh well, there's still a couple of weeks left :)

pussreboots said...

I'm all done! I've posted my last review for The Sea-Wolf on my blog.

verniciousknids said...

I've posted about my second read here:

I was disappointed in The Turn of the Screw but am already halfway through my third choice!

Stephanie said...

I seem to be super far behind in this! I finished my 1st last week, but I'm almost done with 2 more! The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte. Very Good Book! Here's my review:

http://stephaniesbooks.blogspot.com/2007/02/classic-tale-by-lesser-known-bronte.html

3M said...

Finished my 2nd Classics book -- Silas Marner. Loved it! My review along with my favorite passages can be found at http://3mreviews.blogspot.com.

I'm making steady progress on The Woman in White, and luckily my two other ones are very short: Heart of Darkness and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

http://sharala.blogspot.com/2007/02/classics-challenge-mrs-dalloway.html
My third has been finished but I'm waiting to post my review.

DJ said...

I finished the first four of my classics and have comments up at my blog. (Didn't realize I should stop by and post until now. I'm glad I did because it's fun to read everyone else's comments and see their selections.)

#1 was the Odyssey and I think I'm happier about having read it than I was about reading it . . .

#2, 3, and 4 were Mary Barton (thanks to Jill), The Scarlet Pimpernel (fast and entertaining read, though not what I expected from vague memories of the movie), and Bell for Adano (substitution for Oliver Twist).

Literary Feline said...

I completed Jane Austen's Emma in wee hours of the morning.

Wendy said...

Finished! Wrapped up the challenge by reading Ethan Frome, by Edith Wharton. Wow...what a great book. I gave it a 5/5 and posted a review on my blog.

THANK YOU, Booklogged, for sponsoring this wonderful challenge. It has refreshed my love of the classics and made me vow to keep reading more of them.

Jackie said...

Well, I'm not keeping up too well, but I've finished Rebecca and A Wrinkle in Time. Next up - Emma.

Melanie said...

I've just finished Chesterton's The Man who was Thursday and have posted some thoughts on it. A quick read, if you don't stop to try to figure out the meaning of each page as you go along...

Melanie said...

I've finally finished my fifth classic, Mary Barton. I've enjoyed this challenge very much, and been inspired to read some more of my must-reads!

Melissa said...

Number four down. I really enjoyed Mrs. Mike. A review is up at my blog. Now to get ahold of a Fennimore Cooper book before the end of the month!

SuziQoregon said...

Finished #4 - The Three Musketeers. What a fun romp.

On to #5 - Frankenstein.

Thanks again Booklogged - this has been a fun challenge.

Janet said...

I have finished all five of my classics. I just completed Little Women. The complete list is on the margin of my blog. Ok what is next?

bookish lore said...

I've just finished my #3, The Two Towers. I've also finished Candide which was in my EXTRA list (hope it counts as a #4)

Paula said...

Just posted my 4th Classics review~ Wuthering Heights ~ on my "Pieces of Me" site ~ Have almost finished my 5th classic. Yipee!!

sarala said...

My third book is done and reviewed here:
http://sharala.blogspot.com/2007/02/walker-in-city-by-alfred-kazin.html
Struggling through the last two but think I'll make it.

raidergirl3 said...

Of course plans seemed to change a bit. I've finished at least five classics. Most recent books were: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'engle and Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. Emma is not calling me, but I might finish Northanger Abby by the end of February. One Austen is as good as another?
Thanks for the challenge.I've quite enjoyed it and I'm sure I will be peppering my reading with classics much more often now.
my reviews are at http://www.freewebs.com/raidergirl3/

Susan said...

My thoughts on classic #4 can be found at My Reading Adventures

Literary Feline said...

What great fun this was! I finished by 5th classic tonight. I really enjoyed doing this. Thank you for inspiring me to open up and read some of the classics that had been lingering on my shelves for awhile.

Paula said...

I have finished my last classic ~ The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain. A delightful read, timeless in it's telling.
Thank you, Booklogged, for this fun challenge. I would not have gotten to those classics right away if it hadn't been for this challenge. So glad I did!

heidijane said...

Finished fourth book a while ago and will hopefully finish the fifth one in time...

Alyson said...

I've finished Little Women and Sense and Sensibility. I also changed my fifth classic to Northanger Abbey. It was available at my library in CD form and it's short enough to finish before the end of February. I might still be able to finish all five!!

3M said...

Finished my 4th--The Woman in White. I was really nervous that I wouldn't be able to finish, but my next book is the fairly (fairlie--ha ha from the Woman in White) short Heart of Darkness. I think I'll make it! I think I can....I think I can.....

Number four is done at last! Now that I've read it I can't think why I let Tess of the D'Urbervilles languish in my TBR box so long. My review of the final classic should be up in the nick of time tomorrow - as long as my browser doesn't throw a tantrum!

Hmm. It looks like my comment did not go through, so here's a second try.

Completed: Australian Miles Franklin's All That Swaggers. Also here's the permalink to one already reported, but incorrectly linked: Fugard's 'Master Harold' ... And the Boys.

I completed the challenge! :) I finished classic #5, Persuasion, on Feb. 18th. Hopefully, I can get my review done and posted by the end of today. Thanks for hosting this challenge. I had my doubts if I would accomplish it but I did. :D
