A Shakespearean Summer

Shakespeare is one of the most famous playwrights of all time, right? Today, though, most of the reading of his plays that goes on is required school reading. Liv, over at Liv's Book Reviews has come up with a challenge for everyone to read three Shakespeare Plays by August 31 this summer. This challenge is being sponsored by Lisa Mantchev, and those who complete it will be entered into a drawing to win:

1. a signed hardcover of Lisa Mantchev's debut novel, Eyes Like Stars
2. a fabulous prize,TBD
3. an invitation to do a guest post on the series' website Théâtre Illuminata.

How awesome is that? To get the rest of the information, as well as sign up head over to the original post.

Personally, I've only read one Shakespeare play. It was Romeo and Juliet for my English 1 course. I absolutely loved the plot, although I just wanted to knock the two main characters over the head, most of the time. It made the cynical side of me come out. I'm really looking forward to reading more of his work. You should give it a try too!
