The Literary Life 19 for 2021 Reading Challenge

 192021squareI will be joining The Literary Life Reading Challenge again this year. I enjoy this challenge because it gets me to read things I wouldn't otherwise read.  Also, the hosts of the podcast, Cindy Rollins, Angelina Stanford and Thomas Banks, often discuss books that will fill a category from the challenge.  I will record my progress here.

A book (or selection) of Letters - Meet Me at the Museum by Anne Youngson

A book from Your To-Be-Read Stack - The Dressmaker of Khair Khana by Gayle Tzemach Lemmon

An Ancient Greek or Roman Work

A Book on Education, Art or Literature - A Philosophy of Education by Charlotte Mason

A Victorian Novel

A Lesser-Known Book by a Well-Known Author

A Shakespeare Play

A Book You have Avoided

Finish a Book You Started but Never Finished

A Literary Biography

Something Russian

A Regional or Local Book

A 14th, 15th or 16th Century Book

A Book in a Genre You Don't Normally Read - Father Elijah: An Apocalypse by Michael D. O'Brien

An Obscure Book Mentioned by Thomas Banks (or any book mentioned on the podcast)

A Light Comedic Novel
