March-May 2021

Rachel at The Edge of the Precipice invites you to join her in a read-along of Sense and Sensibility that begins March 1st.

Fanda at Fanda Classiclit is hosting her 8th annual Zoladdiction event in April.

What’s in Zoladdiction 2021? From Fanda’s blog:

  • This year I encourage you to go beyond reading.
  • Yes, we will still read Zola, but during April we can also share/post/tweet/talk about just any thing that is related to Zola. A book you’re reading reminds you of Zola? Share it! Found Zola’s quote/picture on Pinterest? Share it! Watched movie about Zola? Share it! Anything at all.
  • If you chose to read quietly, it’s OK. You can pick one of Zola’s works, or Zola’s biography, or any books about Zola by other writers.
  • To participate, simply leave comment, or mention me on Twitter, using hashtag #Zoladdiction2021, and tell me your plan for Zoladdiction (it might inspire others).
  • If you blog about your participation, leave the link in comment box here.

2021 (All Year)

back-to-the-classics-challenge

For the eighth year, Karen at Books and Chocolate is hosting the Back to the Classics Challenge, a year-long challenge in which participants are encouraged to finally read the classics they’ve always meant to read — or just recently discovered. At the end of the year, one lucky winner will receive a prize $30 (US) in books from the bookstore of their choice. Take a look at Karen’s sign-up post on Books and Chocolate for more details about the challenge.

The aim of the 2021 Nonfiction Reader Challenge is to encourage you to make nonfiction part of your reading experience during the year. The challenge will run from January 1st to December 31st 2021. Participants may join at any time up until December 1st 2021. Create a blog post committing to your participation in this challenge, and link up with host Shelley at Book’d Out.

If you’d like to participate in the 2021 Chapter-a-Day Read-along at One Catholic Life:
1. Leave a comment on this post telling everyone that you’ll be reading along and why.
2. Get a copy of each of the five books pictured above. Or read them online. All of them are available at Project Gutenberg at the links found in the descriptions below.
3. Commit to reading a chapter a day, starting on January 1, 2021. If you get behind or race ahead, no worries. As 2020 taught us so well, life happens.
4. If you feel like it, post a line a day from the current chapter on social media.

Gather Together and Read will be hosting a 1000 Books to Read Before You Die Project: French Classics 2021. The first half of the year will feature The Count of Monte Cristo and the end of the year will feature Les Miserables. For more information, take a look here.

If you’re a Classics Clubber and you would like to sharing information about a classics event, fill in the contact form here.  Please let us know the start and end date for the event, some details, and a link to the home site.  It’s fine to do this whether you’re the host of the event or simply want to share one you’ve discovered, as long as you’re a clubber.  (Also check out any events our members on Twitter may have tweeted about at hashtag #cceventsched.) 🙂 – The Club

    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?
