For the fun of it, the The Classics Club is trying out a Classics Spin for Clubbers who are interested. And the spin is easy.

By next Monday, Feb 18, Clubbers should list their choice of any twenty books left to read from their Classics Club list and read one of these books in February and March. The list should be in the following order:

  • 5 Classics Club books you are dreading/hesitant to read,
  • 5 Classics Club books you can’t WAIT to read,
  • 5 Classics Club books you are neutral about
  • 5 free choice (favorite author, rereads, ancients — whatever you choose.)

On Monday, 18th, a post will go up listing a random number selected from the 1-20. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on the Clubbers’ Spin Lists, by 1st April.

I am game for this because it will urge me to add up the number of read Classics; that is progress, whatever I end up reading. so here is my list:

5 Classics Club books you are dreading/hesitant to read                       

  1. Marc Ferro:  – Nicholas II (The Last of the Tsars)
  2. Stoker, Bram    – Dracula             
  3. Tolstoy, LeoAnna Karenina 
  4. Haggard, Rider – Nada The Lily
  5. Shakespeare – Coriolanus

5 Classics Club books you can’t WAIT to read

7. Blackmore, R. D. Lorna Doone
8. Bronte, Charlotte  – Jane Eyre

13. Wright, Richard – Black Boy

5 free choice (favorite author, rereads, ancients — whatever you choose.) And those I have chosen below are my favourites/re-reads
