Nothin' Beats a Classic!

I love a good classic. I've been trying to add in a few classics to my reading list in the last few years, as I didn't read very many of them when I was growing up. Are there any other contemporary-written novel lovers out there who'd like a bit of a nudge to dip back into the classics?

I think I can help with that!

In June, the challenge is to read classic or vintage books. To me, these are books published at least 50 years ago. Please include the year of publication when sharing which books you'll read for this challenge.

Need some ideas?

Here are some classics I've enjoyed in the past.


Here are some classics I'm planning on trying.

Which classic or vintage books are you reading in June?

Do you have a favorite classic/vintage novel?

Join the conversation!
I love hearing from you.

*Squeals* This one is going to be so easy and fun! Over half of our books in the house fall under this category. :) I even have two waiting on my to-read shelf that fit. Now if I can just make time to read . . . ;)

Ooh, sounds like I struck a winning category with you! I'm so happy to hear that. I've been trying to come up with a little something for everyone throughout this year.

I read RUN AWAY, LITTLE GIRL by Marilyn M. Segal. It's a book of triumph over adversity.

Andrea Cox said...

That sounds like a great read! Wonderful job.

I finished 4:50 From Paddington by Agatha Christie earlier this month. It was published in 1957, which was over 50 years ago. That looks like the only classic book I'll get to this month.

Okay, here's my list. I'm NOT going to read another book today. Don't have time. So this is it.

1. Little Miss Atlas (Tippy #2) 1949
2. Miss America (Tippy #3) 1951
3. Don't Cry Little Girl (Tippy #4) 1952
4. Rainbow After Rain (Tippy #5) 1953
5. Welcome Home, Mrs. Jordon (Tippy #6) 1953
6. Song in Their Hearts (Tippy #7) 1956
7. Spotlight on Penelope 1958
8. Over to Paul 1958
9. We Were There at the Boston Tea Party 1956
10. Winterbound 1936
11. She's My Girl! 1949
12. Erick and Sally 1921

I wasn't expecting to get that many read. Nor to have most of them from the 1950s. :) Oh, well.

Wow! Rebekah, that's quite a list. Great job!
