Archive for the ‘Completed Challenges 2009’ Category


This one of those challenges , that was actually challenging. I finished books like Iliad and Caanterbury Tales which were never on my reading agenda if not for the challenge. It was a eye opener towards older literature , one which I have paid very less attention. Thanks to Becky for hosting this wonderful challenge.

My completed list:

This is my list for the challenge:

Iliad by Homer (800 -700 BC)

Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer (1386)

Girl With A Pearl Earring – Tracy Chevalier ( set in 17 th century)

Vanity Fair by William Thackeray (1847)

One thing is for sure. I am going to participate in Centuries Challenge 2010.


I had participated in Trish’s Classics Challenge 2009 and my level of entry was Classics Entree  where I had to read 5 classics. I must tell you that it was great fun reading classics because they are my favourite genre . Here’s the completed list.

3 Silas Marner by George Eliot

4 Journey To The Center Of The Earth – Jules Verne
