Hi clubbers!! We’re excited to be posting our April meme question for the club!
Here’s the question this month:
Contemplate your favorite classic to date. When was this book written? Why would you say it has been preserved by the ages? Do you think it will still be respected/treasured 100 years from now? If it had been written in our own era, would it be as well received? // Or — ask the same question of a classic you disliked. What didn’t you like about the book, and why do you think history’s readers helped it to be remembered and valued into 2014?
Feel free to answer over at your blog any time in April, and leave the link to your post in the comments below.
