For the Classic Double Challenge, you read one older book (classic) and a newer book that relates to the older book in some way. An example that the blog author provided: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte and Jane by April Lindner.
This Challenge also has 4 levels to choose from:
- Small: You read 2 related books (one classic & one related).
- Medium: You read 4 books (2 sets of related books).
- Large: You read 6 books (3 sets of related books).
- Super Size: You read 8 books (4 sets of related books).
I am going to start small with this one, as I want to attempt some of the other challenges as well. I might come back to this one later and read more, but I am only going to commit to the Small challenge and read 2 related books. The books I have selected for this challenge are:
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle - classic
When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead - related double
I remember my sixth grade teacher Mrs. Greynolds reading the Madeleine L'Engle A Wrinkle in Time series to our class. I loved these books. I cannot wait to reread A Wrinkle In Time and then tackle When You Reach Me.
The author to the blog & challenge creator has a wonderful list to choose from, you can find that here: Classic Double Book List
