Summer Classics Challenge -- A Wrap-Up

A few weeks ago I finished the Summer Classics Challenge hosted by Kathrin from Crazy Cozy Murders. I've been a bit slow on wrapping it up. The challenge ran from July through Nov, 2007 and the goal was to read 3-5 classics of our own choosing. I read the following three:
1. The Bridge of San Luis Rey by Thornton Wilder
2. The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Emmuska Orczy
3. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
All three books were wonderful. Pimpernel was my favorite, but I liked the other two a lot.

I have had people asking if I'm going to host the winter classics challenge again in January. The answer is no. I thought this was a much better time to read classics. I find Jan. and Feb. are much better to suited for reading mysteries.

Thanks, Kathrin, for hosting this challenge. I hope you will consider doing it again next summer. I need the push to get me to read the classics.

Congrats Booklogged! You're doing wonderfully with the challenges, keep it up! I have such fond memories of the Winter Classics Challenge you hosted last year that I shall miss it this time, but hey, there is the Summer Classics challenge so may be that is what I'll do next year!
