Proposed Blog Tour: Explore the Classics

July 15, 2015 Whitney Explore the Classics 1 Comment

“Classic’ – a book which people praise and don’t read.”

Spoken by Mark Twain these words could not be truer. Classics I feel are the basis for popular art, think of the constant spewing of Jane Austen retellings or adaptations of Shakespeare because these stories are timeless and have transcended centuries. I have my comfort zone of romantics, but there are so many authors and sub-genres I have not delved into yet. Yes, the Classics Club is slowly getting me there but I thought I would take it a step further and start a blog tour, focusing on a classic author  I would love to make this amonthly (or bi-monthly community event with participants being scheduled on a particular day to review or talk about a book from the selected category and “Explore the Classics.”

I would like to start this event in August and if there is enough interest would hold sign-ups in the next few days.

For the first in the installment, I was thinking about featuring Daphne Du Maurier.   I have also  thought of a few other ideas for the coming months:

Upcoming month inspirations

Let me know what you think, I would love the feedback!

      I like these ideas. I don’t want to participate in the Georgette Heyer one, but I’ll come back and see what else is going on. The war correspondent one intrigues me. I’m looking for a link to the Classics Club, as that sounds like something I’d like. 🙂 @abetterjulie from
