2014 Reading Challenge - 5 from Forever


Rachel has thrown down a new reading challenge for the new year. This time it is about all those books you want to read 'someday', that have been on your list 'forever'. Pick 5 of them and read them.

My 2014 Reading Challenge list:
  1. On the Origin of Species by Charles Darwin, 1859
  2. Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe, 1852
  3. 1984 by George Orwell, 1950
  4. Utopia by Thomas More, 1516
  5. The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank, 1947
All of them are classic and they are often referenced and quoted but it is impossible to talk intelligently about them if you have never read them.
A beautiful illustrated edition of On the Origin of Species is sitting right beside me as I type. I've started reading it but anticipate that it will be some time before it is finished.
Get more details on the challenge on the Little WhiteDove blog and you can also have a nosey at what everyone else has on their 'Forever' list.
