Scratch Crime and Punishment from the Winter's Classics list.
I came home from work last night to find that a bored S. had picked up The Brothers Karamazov and wasn't going to need any encouragement on my part to continue. (His sister will be thrilled.) He will, however, need a discussion buddy, so, now that I'm signing on for the impromptu re-read of a 776-pager, I'm throwing earlier plans out the window.
Revised plans are now:
the substituted Dostoevsky
Proust's In the Shadow of Young Girls in Flower
Stendhal's The Red and the Black
Chekhov's Ward No. 6
Pirandello's Six Characters in Search of an Author
Hardy's The Return of the Native
I may not have time to finish the Mann and Hardy before the challenge ends, but I'm definitely going to read them.
And now I must scramble to catch up in The Brothers.
