Daria Reading List Challenge
Back in the 1990's there was this wonderful sarcastic cartoon show on MTV that I loved. The heroine was a high school girl nerd or geek, named Daria.
The way she delivered her lines - often with a dead pan face or tone - was hilarious!!
Her name was Daria Morgendorffer and she was a bookworm just like me!!! Daria had one close friend, Jane. She also kind of had a crush on Jane's older brother Trent, who was into music. And Daria also had a rather annoying kid sister, Quinn, who was into clothes, makeup, fashion and being popular. Quinn was the total opposite of Daria.
Anyway, Daria read a lot of books, and someone has been kind enough to make a list. So the challenge is to read these books.
Daria Reading List
Since this classics challenge runs for 5 years, I think it would be relatively easy to add some of these books to my list. I am currently putting together a second list of 50 classics that I do want to read.
Some of the books and authors on Daria's list I already have and do not wish to repeat - either the books or the authors.
So with a total of 100 books, once I get this second list finalised, I plan to be reading 2 classics per month to finish everything in 50 months or a little over 4 years - and have some extra months for "just in case".
