“This event is way more a celebration than a “reading challenge.” It’s about hunting out those forgotten titles which didn’t make it into the official canon, & reading them & sharing the excitement. Or exploring the females who are in the canon. For example, if you want to spend the entire year poring over Middlemarch by George Eliot, going a chapter or two a month and gently journaling, we don’t want to stifle that by asking you to meet a title count.”
My journey for the Women’s Classic Literature Event opened the way for many rereads of my favourite author and introduction to new Classic authors. I am happy that I made an effort to read a few books because it allowed me to read stories of authors I always wanted to sample their writings.
