Other 2012 Reader Challenges #2: Back to the Classics Challenge hosted by Sarah Reads Too Much

Remember when I mentioned going a little crazy with all the reader challenges?  Well, here's the second challenge I signed up for - Back to the Classics Challenge hosted by Sarah Reads Too Much.  I'm really looking forward to this one because I haven't read a lot of classics since I finished college and there is a long list of them I would eventually like to read.  This should force coerce convence me to do it.

The Challenge: Read nine classic books, one in each of the catagories listed below

The Rules:
- Runs from Jan 1, 2012 to Dec 31, 2012 with books started before Jan 1 not counting towards the challenge.  All links to reviews should be posted by midnight on Dec 31.

- Books can qualify for other challenges as well, but only fulfill one category in this challenge, and audio/e-books count too.

- Pages for each category will be set up on Sarah's page where you will link your reviews/make comments.

- At the end of the year, there will be a prize!  Huzzah!

The Catagories:

- Any 19th Century Classic
- Any 20th Century Classic
- Reread a classic of your choice
- A Classic Play
- Classic Mystery/Horror/Crime Fiction
- Classic Romance
- Read a Classic that has been translated from its original language to your languange 
- Classic Award Winner
- Read a Classic set in a Country that you (realistically speaking) will not visit during your lifetime

If this sounds like your type of challenge, sign up on the Linky at Sarah Reads Too Much.
