Our Mutual Read: A Victorian Reading Challenge

Our Mutual Read is a Victorian reading challenge hosted by Amanda. The challenge runs from January 1st 2010 – December 31st 2010.

There are 3 levels to choose from and 2 Mini-Challenges.

~ Level 1: 4 books, at least 2 written during 1837 – 1901. The other books may be Neo-Victorian or non-fiction.
~ Level 2: 8 books, at least 4 written during 1837 – 1901. The other books may be Neo-Victorian or non-fiction.
~ Level 3: 12 books, at least 6 written during 1837 – 1901. The other books may be Neo-Victorian or non-fiction.

Period Film Mini-Challenge — watch at least 6 films that take place between 1837 – 1901 (they don’t necessarily have to be based on a book) and post a review.

Short Story Mini-Challenge — read 12 short stories written or taking place between 1837 – 1901 and post a review.

I will probably go for Level 3 since the Victorian era is one of my favourites. I haven’t made a reading list yet, but I do have lots of Victorian and Neo-Victorian books on my TBR pile.

For more details please see the challenge blog.

    I joined up with this challenge as well. I love the idea of returning to some classics in 2010 and reading all the reviews.
