First, what happened to #17?
Second, 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 March 9th, a random number is chosen out of 20 and then I have to read (and review) the corresponding book by April 30th.
Some harsh reality, but I completely tanked the last Spin. I got only 30% the way through the book and didn’t review it. Also things have already gone downhill for my plan this year for my blog…
But no matter what’s going on with the blog at present, it’s clear I need a successful spin after the bomb of #16!
It’s time for REDEMPTION.
