I love reading classic lit especially from the Victorian era. At least two of my favourite authors, Charles Dickens and Bram Stoker, are from that era. So, how can I resist participating in The Victorian Literature Challenge?
Under the “Great Expectations” participation level of The Victorian Literature Challenge 2011, the challenge is to read five-nine books from the Victorian era, between 01 Jan 2011 – 31 Dec 2011. Queen Victoria reigned from 1837-1901. Books that weren’t published during those particular years, but is by an author considered ‘Victorian’ are allowed. Also, this can include works by authors from other countries, so long as they are from this period.
