Let’s Read Plays Reading Event: My List

Maybe you guys are sick and tired already of reading posts about me joining reading challenges and reading events in this blog. As I wrote in my previous post that for now I want to slow things down because I have a lot to do with my life besides reading and blogging, but I can’t deny that I still have a thirst to explore.


This yearlong Let’s Read Plays (LRP) event hosted by Fanda Classiclit and Ngidam Buku gives me a chance in exploring what once I was horrified with, which is Shakespeare plays. Born and grew up in a country that doesn’t include plays –especially  Shakespeare’s works– in their school curriculum, to me the name sounds interesting, enchanting, and at the same time terrifying.


Knowing that I got some friends aboard (in this reading event) helped putting the thought that I can nail this. At least I got to give it a try. The good news is, not only Shakespeare, participants of LRP are also given a chance to explore plays written by other authors.

Below is my reading plan for LRP event:

November 2012: Shakespeare’s Tragedy: Julius Caesar — READ

December 2012: Shakespeare’s Comedy: Twelfth Night — READ

January 2013: Freebie: Our Town by Thornton Wilder — READ

February 2013: Shakespeare’s History: Richard III

March 2013: Greek: Oedipus Rex by Sophocles — READ

April 2013: Shakespeare’s Comedy: The Winter’s Tale

May 2013: Shakespeare’s Tragedy: Romeo and Juliet

June 2013: Oscar Wilde: The Importance of Being Earnest — READ

July 2013: Other author: The Skin of Our Teeth by Thornton Wilder

August 2013: Shakespeare’s Comedy: A Midsummer Night’s Dream

September 2013: Freebie: An Ideal Husband by Oscar Wilde

October 2013: Shakespeare’s Tragedy: King Lear

Note: The list above is still subject to change! 😉

  1. We’ll be reading quite a few of the same plays! I hope you like “Our Town” it is one of my favorite plays — if I have time I might read it again for this event. 🙂
