1.) The blog post – is Sheree’s very interesting discussion about what makes a book a classic. This is the perennial question, of course, but I really like how she goes about exploring it.
You can read the original blog post What Makes A Book A Classic? on Keeping Up With The Penguins. It delves into the various criteria by which we judge books to be classics, and some of Sheree’s favourite definitions drawn from Italo Calvino’s book on the subject, Why Read The Classics?
