I'm co-hosting a challenge - want to join?

I'm excited to announce that Rebecca Reads and I are hosting a challenge together ...


The challenge is simple - read one "really old classic" between Nov. '09 and Feb. '10. What is a "really old classic"? We define it as anything written prior to 1600 AD. Both Rebecca and I have come to love many of these old stories and poems and we are excited to get others to read them as well.

Of course you can always read more than one. In fact, there's an optional second level to the challenge for those of you who want to take it on. And for extra credit you can read a modern retelling of one of the really old classics. See, there's something for everyone here!

Get all the details at the challenge blog - and be sure to subscribe so you can keep up to date with any challenge news. Hope to see you there!
