Litsy @Vivlio_Gnosi At the moment, just searching. But, yes, that's something we're planning. Thanks! 2mo

“Our weary eyes looking still, looking always, looking anxiously for something out of life, that while it is expected is already gone - has passed unseen, in a sigh, in a flash - together with the youth, with the strength, with the romance of illusions.” (from Youth: A Narrative) #josephconrad #litsyclassics #holidayreads

Thank you @BookwormM - it arrived safely this morning 😊. Really not sure how I‘ll get on with this one, but looking forward to giving it a try - and it‘s 112 pages short, which always helps 👍

batsy This is on my list! Planned to read for #litsyclassics last year but never happened. Love this edition 💙 5mo
BookwormM Glad it arrived safely let us know how you get on 👍😃 5mo

I am actually quite satisfied with how I did overall with my year-long reading challenges! I came close with #LitsyAtoZ, but put aside the last few to finish up #pop18.

#LitsyClassics went to the wayside, but I think I did read at least 6. Apparently, alphabet challenges are not my thing. 🤷🏻‍♀️🥳

4thhouseontheleft Plus #MountTBR which I momentarily forgot all about! My goal was 24, and I read 30. 🥳🥳🥳 6mo

#LitsyClassics bk 26 Z
Ta dah i finished and on a highlight of my reading year. Having been in the school chess team many moons ago i loved the story which encompasses more than just a game as it pits two very different men with different stories against each other.
Thanks to @Sarah83 for encouraging this challenge - I'll post a pic of all 26 tomorrow with hopefully my new challenge.

And so my #litsyclassics is concluded. I‘ve enjoyed most of them, some of my five star reads have been from the list, and it has been fun doing this challenge. Thanks to my buddy readers for the comradeship and also @Sarah83 for hosting this.

Sarah83 Thank you so much 😍 I am happy, you liked it 💕 6mo

That‘s a wrap! I finished the tagged book this morning, completing #litsyclassics. I started the year with Jane Eyre, and that remains my favorite of the bunch. Heart of Darkness ranks lowest.

Some other classics read this year that didn‘t make the list: Frankenstein, A Clockwork Orange, The Picture of Dorian Gray, A Wrinkle in Time, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and The Great Gatsby.

Sarah83 So happy you liked it and finished the challenge. 🎉 6mo
sprainedbrain I‘m with you on ranking Heart of Darkness lowest. 😖 Congrats on finishing!! 6mo
