And we are back!!!
As seen from the title, I am going on a classic book reading marathon. I have thirty something books minus Agatha Christie books, I have on my shelf. I am slightly those types of books. And here me, telling you what I define a classic book to be.
A classic book defined for me would a book written in the ancient times until 1980s. Sorry Harry Potter, you are not a classic in my books. Bye.. 🙂
I began to be obsessed with book genre of classics after taking Literature in High School. Thank Mrs. Bailey. Thank you.
There are rules, I plan on keeping while doing reading:
I am not allowed to quit reading a book. I must finish it fully. I can’t quit even if the story is slow, full of language and romance.
I have to rate the story and review it even if its just a sentence or two.
Here are all the books minus Agatha Christie, I plan on reading. There is no order in which I am reading them.
