Daniel Defoe Mini-Challenge
This mini-challenge--the Daniel Defoe Mini-Challenge--will be for the 2009 year. January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009.
The challenge is to read TWO books by Defoe. (One movie may be substituted in the place of one of the books.) Audio books are acceptable as well.
Here are just a few of the books I've found by Defoe:
Robinson Crusoe (1719)
Captain Singleton (1720)
Colonel Jack (1722)
Moll Flanders (1722)
Journal of the Plague Year (1722)
The Storm (1704?)
Memoirs of a Cavalier (1720)
Tour Through The Whole Island of Great Britain (1724-27)
The Complete English Tradesman (1726)
London the Most Flourishing City in the Universe (1728)
I'm aiming to read MOLL FLANDERS and ROXANA. If I've got the time and energy, I may go for Robinson Crusoe as well.
