[Reading Challenge 2012] Back to the Classics

Lagi-lagi challenge… 😀 tapi yang ini berhadiah lho. (Siapa sih yang nggak mau hadiah?)
Sebagai penikmat novel-novel klasik, saya merasa kudu ikut challenge yang satu ini.

Back To The Classics Challenge 2012

Begini syarat-syarat mengikutinya (diambil dari posting asli di blog ini)

  1. Challenge runs from January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012. Books started before January 1st do not count, and all links/reviews/comments for each category must be posted in the correct place by December 31st. Feel free to join in at any time, but the end date is December 31.
  2. Please feel free to use books in this Challenge toward any other Challenge you may be participating in. However, you must read a different book for each category of this challenge. Audio and e-books are allowed.
  3. Please sign up for the Challenge using the linky list (or comment section if you do not have a blog/website). If you would be so kind, please spread the word about this challenge by creating a post on your blog/website and link back to this sign up page.
  4. Once the Challenge has begun, you will see a new bar on the left hand side of this blog. This will list the places for you to link/comment your reviews of the book you have read for each category as well as a “wrap up” page. I will not be doing monthly check-in posts this year. I will probably do a “Half Way” post in June. These will be important because….
  5. THERE IS A PRIZE THIS YEAR! People who complete the challenge (and I will check that all categories are completed!) will be entered into a random drawing for $30 worth of books (Book Depository will be used for an International Winner). I may have other prizes as well. Make sure you are following me via GFC, Email, Twitter, or Facebook/Networked Blogs so you are in the know!

Nah, kategori-kategorinya adalah sebagai berikut:

  • Any 19th Century ClassicThe Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo –> READ
  • Any 20th Century Classic – Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell –> READ
  • Reread a classic of your choice – Bleak House by Charles Dickens –> READ
  • A Classic Play – Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare –> READ
  • Classic Mystery/Horror/Crime Fiction – And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie –> READ
  • Classic RomanceNorthanger Abbey  by Jane Austen –> READ
  • Read a Classic that has been translated from its original language to your language – The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson –> READ
    To clarify, if your native language is NOT English, you may read any classic originally written in English that has been translated into your native language.
  • Classic Award Winner – The Bridge of San Luis Rey by Thornton Wilder –> READ
    To clarify, the book should be a classic which has won any established literary award.
  • Read a Classic set in a Country that you (realistically speaking) will not visit during your lifetimeGulliver’s Travels: A Voyage to Lilliput and A Voyage to Brobdingnag by Jonathan Swift –> READ
    To Clarify, this does not have to be a country that you hope to visit either. Countries that no longer exist or have never existed count.
