Summer of Classics: Recap

This summer I decided to make my own reading list - The Summer of Classics.  I made time to spend reading, rather than lazing on the couch watching mindless TV after work/dinner/housework.  I reachd out to friends and family for recommendations, and focused on the classics.  Here's how I did:
The Once and Future King by T.H. White
The Count of Monte Christo by Alexandre Dumas
The Jungle Books by Rudyard Kipling
The Scarlet Pimpernel by Countess Orczy
Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott
Women in Love by D.H. Lawrence
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
Captains Courageous by Rudyard Kipling

This was such a fun way to keep up with reading over the summer.  I hope to do another reading challenge next summer, again focusing on the classics!  And while I might not make a big deal of it, the fall I'll be catching up on some children's literature that I missed the first time around.  I just need to find a copy of A Wrinkle in Time to get me started.
