Our Mutual Read: A Victorian Reading Challenge

Button! Our Mutual Read: "This challenge will run from January 1st, 2010 to December 31st 2010. And it is completely okay to double-dip, what you read/watch here can count on other challenges!

Next, decide on what level you'd like to participate:
~ Level 1: 4 books, at least 2 written during 1837 - 1901. The other books may be Neo-Victorian or non-fiction.
~ Level 2: 8 books, at least 4 written during 1837 - 1901. The other books may be Neo-Victorian or non-fiction.
~ Level 3: 12 books, at least 6 written during 1837 - 1901. The other books may be Neo-Victorian or non-fiction.

Then, determine if you are up to a mini-challenge:
Period Film Mini-Challenge -- watch at least 6 films that take place between 1837 - 1901 (they don't necessarily have to be based on a book) and post a review.

Short Story Mini-Challenge -- read 12 short stories written or taking place between 1837 - 1901 and post a review."

Check out Our Mutual Read for further details about this challenge.

I will be participating at Level 1: Read 4 books (at least 2 written during 1837-1901).
The books I selected to read are:
1. North and South by Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell
2. Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell
3. The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins
4. Middlemarch by George Eliot
