    Sense and Sensibility is a great book but my favourite Austen is Emma! :-)

  6. […] And then there’s the Classics Club Challenge. To be honest, I always knew this one was going to be a bit of a long shot when I signed up almost two years ago. My aim was to read 50 classics in 5 years at a rate of roughly 12 a year so 1 per month. I am woefully behind on this challenge. Overall I think I have read only 10 classics, three of which I read this year and I didn’t even write reviews for 2 of them I don’t think. However I have to look on the bright side: it’s probably 10 more than I would’ve read if I hadn’t of joined this challenge and even though my progress is rather slow, it is still progress! So once again, this rolls over to next year and I hope I can tick a few more titles off my list (which you can see here). […]
