The Classics Club is 10 years old. Although I haven’t participated for that long, I do love the time I’ve been a member.
To celebrate our 10 years of blogging about Classics, the moderators have asked some questions, so here are my responses. I skipped a couple.
- When did you join the Classics Club? March 2018.
- What is the best classic book you’ve read for the club so far? Why? This is almost impossible to answer. I’ve found I enjoy most classics, at least to some extent. Maybe Miss Buncle’s Book by D.E. Stevenson because it was such a delightful surprise.
- What is the first classic you ever read? The first I ever read? I have no idea. I read a lot as a child and teenager and I’m sure some classics were included.
- Which classic book inspired you the most? Maybe The Enchanted April by Elizabeth von Arnim. Even though it’s a sweet, light book, it is about finding yourself and enjoying life.
- What is the most challenging one you’ve ever read, or tried to read? Bleak House by Charles Dickens – I ended up thoroughly enjoying it, but it was probably the toughest on my list so far.
- Favourite movie adaptation of a classic? Least favorite? The Muppets Christmas Carol – mostly because I love the muppets.
- Which classic character most reminds you of yourself? None that I can think of.
- Has there been a classic title you expected to dislike and ended up loving? Respecting? Appreciating? Honestly, I don’t put books on my list that I don’t think I’ll enjoy. I will say though that I’ve realized I am not Jules Verne fan.
- Classic/s you are DEFINITELY GOING TO MAKE HAPPEN next year? Middlemarch and Little House in the Big Woods
- Favorite memory with a classic and/or your favourite memory with The Classics Club? I enjoy the Spins when I remember to participate.
