Challenge Complete: Classic Bribe Challenge

Back in June I signed up for Quirky Girl Reads' Classic Bribe Challenge. Here are the basic requirements:

  • Read at least 1 Classic over the summer – between June 1st and the end of Labor Day Weekend, September 5th

  • You can have begun the Classic prior to June 1st, but it needs to have been completed between the challenge dates above

  • Post a review on your blog of each Classic that you read during the challenge period and reference a link to this The Classic Bribe challenge page

  • Completed Book List:
    Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen (6/11/11)Seven Gothic Tales by Isak Dinesen (8/15/11)
    Three Victorian Detective Novels by E. F. Bleiler [ed.] (8/20/11)
    The Master of Ballantrae by Robert Louis Stevenson (8/17/11)Lady Audley's Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon (8/24/11)Sir Nigel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (8/21/11)

    The Devil's Dictionary by Ambrose Bierce (9/5/11)
    Parnassus on Wheels by Christopher Morley (9/5/11)

    I had hoped to complete the following two books in my original post, but Middlemarch proved too much for me...at least for now. I will have to complete these two if I want to finish a few more challenges (no wiggle room on those...)

    Middlemarch by George Eliot
    Hide & Seek by Wilkie Collins

    That makes for 14 Challenges Complete! Only about 17 more to go.....
