Reading Challenge in 2021

Back To The Classics Challenge is hosted by Books and Chocolate.

This is the link to read the full challenge guidelines and rules: Books and Chocolate.

The challenge has the possibility to win a prize. If 6 books are read from the categories: 1 entry in the drawing. If 9 books are read from the categories: 2 entries. If 12 books are read from the categories: 3 entries.

{The categories are copy/pasted from Books and Chocolate.}
Without further ado, here are the categories for 2021: 
1. A 19th century classic: any book first published from 1800 to 1899
2. A 20th century classic: any book first published from 1900 to 1971. All books must have been published at least 50 years ago; the only exceptions are books which were written by 1971 and posthumously published.
3. A classic by a woman author.
4. A classic in translation, meaning any book first published in a language that is not your primary language. You may read it in translation or in its original language, if you prefer. 
5. A classic by BIPOC author; that is, a non-white author.
6. A classic by a new-to-you author, i.e., an author whose work you have never read.
7. New-to-you classic by a favorite author — a new book by an author whose works you have already read. 
8. A classic about an animal, or with an animal in the title. The animal can be real or metaphorical. (i.e., To Kill a Mockingbird).
9. A children’s classic. 
10. A humorous or satirical classic.
11. A travel or adventure classic (fiction or non-fiction). It can be a travelogue or a classic in which the main character travels or has an adventure. 
12. A classic play. Plays will only count in this category.

For this challenge I plan to read at least 6 books.
