The Classic Bribe 2012 Challenge

Some of you may remember this challenge from last year. While I didn’t post a review in the 2011 challenge, I did participate. This year I plan to read AND post at least one “review.”

Here are the details:

The Classic Bribe – Challenge & Giveaway:

  • Read at least 1 Classic over the summer – between Memorial Day and the end of Labor Day Weekend, September 3rd
  • You can have begun the Classic prior to Memorial Day, but it needs to have been completed between the challenge dates above
  • Post a review on your blog of each Classic that you read during the challenge period and reference a link to the “The Classic Bribe” challenge page
  • Link to each of your reviews separately by clicking on Mr. Linky
  • Each linked review counts as 1 entry – no entry limit per blogger – read and review as many as you like
  • Each entry builds up $1 toward an Amazon gift card – the more entries the higher the balance can grow – capped at $35
  • Random winner selected Labor Day weekend from all entries- no restrictions on region
  • Winner receives the full Amazon gift card balance accumulated based on entries received

  2. Good choice with Jane Eyre, as it’s one of my favorites. My mother still gushes over Rebecca but I’ve never read it myself. I haven’t heard of The Wyvern Mystery before, though. I’ll be eagerly awaiting your reviews. Have fun!

    • Eileen, I figured I couldn’t go wrong with Jane Eyre since so many people absolutely adore the story. My daughter is also reading it, but is significantly behind me LOL; I devour each chapter. Thus far, I love it! (Although, I cannot really understand why Jane loves Rochester.)

  3. Both Jane Eyre AND Rebecca lived up to their reputations. Both novel’s protagonists were opposites in so many ways but equally compelling. I’m working on my reviews, which should be posted sometime this month.
