I have a passion for the Classics. Classic movies. Classic Cars. Classic Rock. Pretty much anything old school totally rocks my boat. So of course I am a fan of Classic books. I think more readers should be too. But time and again I run into The Three Classic Excuses. Too much work. Too boring. Too long. Baloney. Not all Classics fit these stereotypes. I try to dispel these myths through my posts here on Quirky Girls Read on a regular basis.
Many kind visitors leave comments stating that they will add a Classic to their To Be Read pile. But you and I both know all that means is that it will be used to prop up the pile rather than being picked up and actually read any time soon. So out of desperation I am resorting to bribery to show readers that Classics can be fun, entertaining and even accomplished in a short period of time!
I have created my first ever challenge and giveaway – relating to the Classics of course. It is called The Classic Bribe and all the exciting details can be found by visiting the official challenge page by clicking HERE or on the sidebar button (isn’t it spiffy? Margot made it for me!) or at the page link beneath the header above. It isn’t much of a challenge really. Just read one Classic in the next three months, link up your review here at QGR and then wait and see if you win an Amazon gift certificate.
So what are you waiting for? Fit a Classic into your summer reading and have a chance to go shopping for whatever book you like to get you ready for the Fall.
