So, the drawn number is 14 and I am to finish Black Beauty by Anna Sewell. I began this early in the year to take part in the Children's Classic Literature Event but never got around to going past the first 15 chapters. I guess this is mainly due to the fact that I don't usually take to stories about animals, and couple with being and autobiography, plus written with simple language meant for children, I'm finding this one a bit difficult for me. However, with the goal of finishing it by April 1st ahead of me, I hope to finally cross this book off my list.
And, just for fun, I went onto a random number generator site to see, if I felt like it, what my next two books from this list could be. I drew #13 and #17 — Ben Hur and The Help, respectively. I'm not sure I'll follow through, but it's fun to just have these lined up for in case I feel like a bit more challenge after the short novel on Black Beauty.
Have you read Black Beauty before? What's your take on children's books about animals?
