Fear Itself Challenge
Fear Itself Challenge hosted by Donna of Lit Bites. You need to choose three books that are in a category that you wouldn't normally read, thus the fearless challenge. It runs from July 1st to December 31st, 2009 and the books MUST be reviewed! Well, I'm going to read:
1. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens (I want to like Dickens, but I've had a hard time getting into his books so here we go. I like the movies, so I'm hoping this is one I can get through.)
2. An essay or two by Ralph Waldo Emerson (I've shied away from him since high school, though I don't know why, so time to face my fear!).
3. One book or at least quite a few entries of poetry. I find poetry a bit too difficult since it makes you really ponder and think and delve...I'm not quite sure what yet, maybe some Keats, Shakespeare's sonnets, etc!
