As I write this a little over a year later I can say this experiment has had outstanding success and has pushed me to read far more than I expected. I think my family feels like I spend too much time with my nose in a book, but reading is an enjoyment, just as watching movies or playing video games is for others.
In the few short remaining months of 2012 I was able to complete eight classics that had escaped me earlier. I didn't slow down as I marched forward into 2013 and have set a brisk pace for myself now.
So what exactly did I accomplish in October, November and December?
The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Emmuska Orczy
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
