Back to the Classics 2018: The Winner

Sorry for taking so long to post this (I've been traveling and it's nearly impossible to edit posts without my laptop). But without further ado, the winner of the Back to the Classics Challenge 2018 is.  .  .  . 

Allison @ Climbing Mount To Be Read !!!!!!!!!!!!

Allison won a $30 gift card from! Congratulations! And many thanks and congratulations to everyone who participated in this challenge -- more than 180 people signed up, and 55 people completed the challenge. Most of them finished all twelve categories, a record! 

And every one of us crossed a bunch of classic books off our to-read lists! I hope everyone enjoyed all the new books and authors they discovered. I hope all everyone has signed up for the 2019 Back to the Classics Challenge -- I'm already working on my new reading list and can't wait to see what everyone else is reading! 


  1. Whoo Hoo! Congratulations Allison!!! :D

  2. Congrats, Allison! (Sorry for asking, Karen, I thought I had missed the announcement or something. I am looking forward to your posts and everyone's posts.) Cheers to one more year of great classics!

  3. Enjoy your prize Allison!! What fun to have an gift card - will you get more books? And thank you Karen for hosting this challenge. I'm working on my first 2019 challenge book right now.

    1. Thanks! The gift card will be used for probably a book, but I haven't decided what deserves a spot on my shelf yet. I'm incredibly picky about what belongs in my home library because I work at a library and pretty much consider them my book storage!

  4. THank you all for the congratulations everyone! I replied to Christina, but yes, I do plan on purchasing a book or two with my gift card. However, it may take some time for me to decide because I don't actually buy a lot of books. I am a heavy library user.
