Classics Club Spin #16

classicsclubI 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!

  1. I’ve only read a few of your choices but enjoyed most of them, so I’m going to hope you get either Rebecca or A Passage to India – both great! I haven’t read Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, but the movie version with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton is one of my all-time favourite films. 🙂
