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

March 2013: Greek: Oedipus Rex by Sophocles — READ
April 2013: Shakespeare’s Comedy: The Winter’s Tale
