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
The Divine Comedy by Dante (1310 - Italy)
A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare (16th century)
