Read-a-Thon Mini-Challenge

"Oldies But Goodies"
Hosted by Allie at A Literary Odyssey

I consider myself to be somewhat "classics challenged." I particularly have a hard time with Victorian literature, but I worked through Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South during the winter, and I'm currently working (very slowly) on A Tale of Two Cities.

My all-time favorite classic, though, is To Kill a Mockingbird. I first read it as a high school senior, and it forever impacted my view of the world, giving me a strong sense of social justice. Last summer, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the book, I re-read it and found that I loved it even more.
