18th and 19th Women Writers Reading Challenge
Hosted by Becky of Becky’s Book Reviews
Minimum 2 books;
All of 2010
Read books written by women authors that were written and/or published between 1700 and 1900. Contemporary historical books set in this time period do not count towards this challenge! The challenge is to encourage you to read some classics.
Here is a place where you can get ideas, but be careful, the list includes some authors who won’t count. (The site lists authors based on when they were born. So on the 1801-1900 list, for example, you might find women authors who were born in this time but didn’t begin writing and publishing their books until the twentieth century.)
Overlaps with other challenges allowed.
Well, so much for taking it easy! It does coincide with my interests, so I’m just going to have to do this challenge, too! There’s still an Austen or two I haven’t yet read, and I’ve been meaning to try that Elizabeth Gaskell who has been so popular of late. And I still have George Eliot to do, too. So there is plenty to choose from.
