    What a fantastic challenge! I wish I had time to do all of these right now. I’ve been nagging myself to read a couple of classics that I’ve never read, and to go back an re-read John Steinbeck’s The Pearl. I also need to read A Midsummer Night’s Dream again for an assignment. Maybe I’ll take a this as a partial challenge and crack the whip.

      There are couple of classics which I too want to read that I’ve never read. I’ll probably have trouble with finding a classic translated to my language, will have to search a bit for that one.
      There is a whole year for the challenge so you’ll probably have time to finish everything, so try to join.
