Yep, you read that correctly. I do want to read a Shakespeare play, even after I've finished my Bachelor's in English Literature. Well this is the slight change in my monthly TBR lists that I wanted to talk about. A few days ago, I realized that over the years I've collected a ton of classic novels that I've never had the motivation to read. When I see used copies in bookstores, I snatch them up because I tell myself that one day I'll get around to reading them. I've decided it's about time I fulfill that promise, but reading a least one classic book a month. I figured Othello would be the best book to start out the classics section of my TBR because one of my favorite professors gave me a copy of this book after I presented one of my papers at a conference. It has a nice handwritten note from him inside and I've always felt guilty about not having read it since I was given it a year ago.
As much as I would love to add many more books to this July TBR, I'm holding myself back. The plus side is I'm surprisingly close to meeting my 2015 Reading Challenge of 100 books, which is something I never expected in July. Don't forget to let me know what books you're looking forward to reading this upcoming month!
