Okay, I've looked over all the suggestions made, and have made adjustments. The challenge is to read 12 from the following 15 categories (or 6, if you doing the light challenge):
1. made into film--
2. new-to-you author--
3. lost in translation--
4. book you consider short--
5. book you consider long--
6. a book you haven't read yet by a favorite classic author--
7. a classic you've always meant to read--
8. a book you didn't get to in a previous challenge--
9. book that won an award--
10. set in colonial history--
11. set during a war--
12-13. two books set in a particular continent
14. pre-19th century classic
15. wild card
2. New to me author -- Living in the Maniototo, by Janet Frame, a New Zealander If it impresses me, I will probably go on to read another of her books, The Carpathians.
4. Book I consider short -- One Writer's Beginnings, by Eudora Welty. 114 pp. The Pulitzer Prize-winning fiction writer gives a lesson in how to look at a life, how to see it as an art form, not a chronicle, but a drama.
8. Book I didn't get to in a previous challenge -- The Saga of Gösta Berling, by Selma Lagerlof. This first novel by the 1909 winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature was the basis of a 1924 silent film of the same name that launched Greta Garbo into stardom.
