Centuries Challenge


Becky is hosting the Centuries Challenge, which runs from 1 January to 31 December 2009 and requires us to read 4 to 6 books from 4 different centuries. Thankfully, they don't need to be consecutive! For more information and for literature timelines, visit Becky's challenge post.

I'm listing some ideas of books I'd like to read - possibles only, no final choices at this point.

Completed: ALL 4/4 as of 22 June 2009

Book of the Dead (c. 1580 B.C.E. - Egypt)
Aesop's Fables by Aesop (c. 550 B.C.E. - Greece)
something by Homer
something by Sophocles
something by Euripedes
The Tale of Genji by Murasaki Shibiku
Beowulf
The Divine Comedy by Dante (1310 - Italy)
A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare (16th century)
Sleeping Beauty and Other Stories (17th century)
Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery (20th century)

I'm terrible. And since it looks like I'll finish all of mine for this year, I see no reason not to sign up for everything going for 2009. I sure love making those lists! :-)
