Classics Club Spin

The wonderful Classics Club is hosting a Classics Spin! Pick 20 books off your Classics Club List. On Monday (the 18th) they will announce a random number and you have to read that number off the list you created sometime before April 1st. I’ve listed a mixture of books I’m dreading, ones I’m looking forward to, very old ones, relatively new ones, big ones, small ones, etc. Can’t wait to see what I’ll be reading!

  2. I should do this. I've been having a difficult time deciding what to read next lately. It'd be nice to have someone else choose for me.

  4. Whitney - Me too, it's kind of fun not to know what I'll be reading next.

    Kristi - This would be perfect then!

    Cat - I hope so! Even if it doesn't, maybe it will give me the push I need to start one I'm dreading.
