Global Classic Challenge!

I have just created my very first challenge! The theme is classic literature from different countries. I think a lot of readers get intimidated when it comes to classic literature because the books are often voluminous. Well, fear not, my friends! This is a small-scaled challenge since I only picked 6 books. At the end of the challenge I intend to do a giveaway. The readers who finish and submit reviews for all 6 books before the deadline will receive a little surprise in the mail. Are you interested yet?

Name: Global Classic Challenge
Theme: Reading 6 classic books from different countries, with each book representing one country

To participate in the challenge, please leave a comment to this post indicating your interest. You can submit your each review by posting a link to your post in which you write your review to my most recent blog entry. If you do not have a blog and wish to participate, you can simply e-mail your review to me and I will post your review on my blog for you.

Honestly I think this is one of easiest challenges out there. You basically have more than enough time to read all of these worldly famous books. What are you waiting for? And don't forget the giveaway at the end! :)
