Decades 08 Challenge – COMPLETE


While I never offiicially joined the 2008 Decades Challenge, I kept track on my own, not thinking I would actually make it.

The goal was to read 8 books in 8 consecutive decades, published before 2000.

Here’s my list:

  • 1830s – Fall of the House of Usher by Edgar Allen Poe (part of Eight Tales of Terror)
  • 1840s – Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
  • 1850s – Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
  • 1860s – Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
  • 1870s – Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll
  • 1880s – Treasure Island by Robert Louise Stevenson
  • 1890s – War of the Worlds by HG Wells
  • 1900s – Wonder Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
