    1. I’m hosting a Reading Classic Books Challenge, which can be done in conjunction with The Classics Club Challenge. There are 12 prompts, Instagram challenges, and giveaways. So, hopefully people can find books from Classics Club reading list to fit the prompts.


      1. Part of me says, “Absolutely!” and part of me says, “Yeah, prolly not gonna happen.” Maybe make a poll and have people vote on what they’d like to have included? Or let everyone choose their own things and just have it be a “read some Shakespeare” event like the Women Authors event from a year or two ago?
