The Century Challenge 2011

BA's Century ChallengeThis is another challenge I’m hosting, but not as straight forwards as the others. If you’re interested click on the banner or follow this link.

I have quite a few classics on my shelf so I am aiming to do the Decade challenge of ten books starting from the year 1904.

  1. 1904: The Food of The Gods by H.G Wells
  2. 1905: The 120 Days of Sodom by Marquis De Sade
  3. 1906: The Jungle by Upton Sinclair
  4. 1907: The Man Who Was Thursday by G.K. Chesterton
  5. 1908: Either The Wind in The Willows or The Iron Heel by Jack London
  6. 1909: Either Tono-Bungay by H.G. Wells or Ann Veronica by H.G. Wells
  7. 1910: The History of Mr Polly by H.G. Wells
  8. 1911: The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
  9. 1912: The Lost World by Arthur Conan Doyle
