I swear a week ago I was thinking, ‘this would be a great time for a Classics Club Spin’, and lo and behold the reading gods answered!
For those who don’t know I’m in the progress of reading 50 classics in 4 years (that I’ve already chosen). The website that hosts the challenge does a fun game called a CC Spin, where your next classic is chosen for you. On November 17th, a random number is chosen out of 20 and then I have to read (and review) the corresponding book by December 31st.
This is great for me because after The Phantom, I didn’t know which classic I wanted to end the year with, so I’ll let fate take the reigns this time. I’ll see everyone on the 17th to talk about the chosen book!
