ON BOOKS ~ I'm Closer To A Classic Than A New Release...


Today marks my debut post on the new group book blog, Quirky Girls Read. I explained how the collaboration came to be last week and hope that you have had a chance to stop by and visit with everyone. Today's post is a discussion on what makes a book a Classic.

Through my posts every other Tuesday, I will be trying to champion the Classics genre over on QGR while mixing in reviews or thoughts on more recently published books. I have developed a passion for the oldies in recent years, possibly because I am closer to their age than the new ones being released. But truly, it is because I think they get a bad rap from readers who were exposed to them as brainiac work in school years rather than engaging, entertaining and timeless stories to be savored at one's own pace and agenda.

So hop on over to QGR and add your voice to the discussion on the definition of a Classic. And if that doesn't pique your interest, here are some of the other topics you'll find over there from the past week:

I'm a classic wannabe, but truthfully I suck at it. I am brutally inept at classics. But back up a minute. I didn't know about this thingy that you're doing! Did I miss it while I was sick? Brava to you my friend. How the hell do you have time?
