Reading Challenges

Never-Ending Shakespeare
Timeline: N/A
Reason: I was inspired while living in Vancouver by the annual Shakespeare festival (24 years running) called Bard on the Beach to begin exploring all of Shakespeare's work. I feel like Shakespeare has influenced the culture of entertainment to such a degree that I would enjoy reading his works if for no other reason than to future my enjoyment of the modern works that have taken inspiration from the Bard. I do not think Shakespeare is the be all end all of classics and I fully expect that I will find some of his plays to be just horrible, but I am interested to discover what my opinions are through experience rather than just assuming that some forms of culture are untouchable or unrelatable.  

Do you have a favourite play? If so let me know! I would love to know what I should check out next.
