    1. I don’t feel really consider myself a ‘classics appreciator’ but lately over the last few years, I’m drawn to them. I might as well try! Plus it makes me commit to books I already own.

  1. Yay! I love this challenge and I’m glad you found a spot for Brideshead. It’s an interesting look at youth, regret, religion, etc. Sign of Four is my favorite Sherlock novel!!!

  2. Thanks so much for signing up!!! I’ve never read Sign of Four, maybe I should put that one on my list. And I hope you get a chance to read Zola, he’s just awesome.

  3. You’ve got some tough ones there. I need to comb through some classic lists to see which ones I want to read this year. I feel as if I haven’t read one in a long while.
