Modern Classics Challenge (Post-1900)

Modern Classics

I’ve discovered a whole other section of literature that I’ve been neglecting, so it’s only fitting that I set up a new challenge to make sure I don’t miss out!

The Modern Classics Challenge will cover roughly the first half of the 20th Century (give or take a few years) and will include such greats as D. H. Lawrence, Gaston Leroux, John Steinbeck and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Again, the aim will be to read one a month (I don’t want to overwhelm myself!).

So, I have a lot of excellent reading coming!

    Thanks for that, Aamaz. Unfortunately, I have difficulty reading lage amounts of texts on-screen, so it’s audio books or physical books for me, I’m afraid.

    I do have all my wish-list books on my Xmas list though, so hopefully I’ll be opening some lovely book-shaped packages on Xmas morning!
