2012 Challenges: Classic Bribe Challenge

I'm excited to join Quirky Girls Read's Classic Bribe 2012 Challenge.  The reading challenge is for classics, the goal to read at least one this summer. A random drawing will decide the winner, but each book reviewed and linked up to on the challenge posts adds to the winnings.

I definitely plan on reading some Shakespeare, some Victorian authors like Trollope, Dickens, Collins, etc., and some children's classics too. I would LOVE to reread E. Nesbit!
