As this is an Enlish challenge I am waiting to hear if Danish classics are "allowed" or if they must be English. Usually the rules for such challenges are not overly strict. But first and foremost, my reading is almost always for fun and not because I have a need to read a lot of books I may find boring.
I have already found two books I want to read and they have been sitting on my shelf for ages:
The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck. I have a copy of this one in Danish and it looks like it is an easy read.
Absalom, Absalom! by William Faulkner. This one I have in English. And I did try reading it way back...it most definitely wasn't easy, but I am willing to try again ;o)
