My original goal for the 2018 Back to the Classics Challenge was 6 books, but I ended up filling all 12 categories, which means I earned 3 entries in the drawing. It shouldn’t be surprising, but by and large classics are enjoyable reads. The titles should link to my reviews. Thanks again to Karen at Books and Chocolate for hosting.
