I did this challenge last year and barley squeaked by in finishing it so I am glad to have it completed a little earlier in the year this time around.
The goal was to read 9 books in 9 consecutive decades. Here is my final list:
1990s-Emperors of Chocolate by Joel Glenn Brenner
1980s-Lincoln: A Photobiography by Russell Freedman
1970s-84, Charing Cross Road by Helen Hanff
1960s-A Vicarage Family by Noel Streatfeild
1950s-Some Tame Gazelle by Barbara Pym
1940s-One Fine Day by Mollie Panter-Downes and Saplings by Noel Streatfield
1930s-Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild and Miss Buncle's Book by D.E. Stevenson
1920s-The Painted Veil by W. Somerset Maugham
1910s- Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton
1900s-The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
This is always a fun one. It is interesting to see which books I read will work for this one. I made a tentative list from my TBR list before I started but I don't think any of them made the final cut, so to speak.
Thanks to 3M for hosting this one.
