Decades Challenge 2008

Spread the love

I’m so excited since I didn’t hear about reading challenges until August and by then it was too late to sign up for this one. I need to read at least 8 books published in 8 consecutive decades.

I’m listing a few books under each category to give me choices. This list is subject to change at any time. I will for sure be reading from the 1850’s to 1920’s.

1850 – A Tale of Two Cities by Oliver Twist
1860 – Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll Review here.
1870 – Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Caroll Review here.
1880 – Heidi by Johanna Spyri Review here.
1890 – The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling
1900 – The Marvelous Land of Oz by Frank L. Baum
1910 – The Magic City by Edith Nesbit
1920 – The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle by Hugh Lofting Review here.

1930 – Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
1940 – Strawberry Girl by Lois Lenski
1950 – Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
1960 – A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
