Classics Spin #8 #ccspin



I haven't done this for some time and thought that with fall finally settled in, I would try this again.

Here are the guidelines:


  • Go to your blog.
  • Pick twenty books that you’ve got left to read from your Classics Club List.
  • Try to challenge yourself: list five you are dreading/hesitant to read, five you can’t WAIT to read, five you are neutral about, and five free choice (favorite author, rereads, ancients — whatever you choose.)
  • Post that list, numbered 1-20, on your blog by next Monday.
  • Monday morning, we’ll announce a number from 1-20. Go to the list of twenty books you posted, and select the book that corresponds to the number we announce.
  • The challenge is to read that book by January 5, even if it’s an icky one you dread reading! (No fair not listing any scary ones!)
Here is my list:

  1. Middlemarch
  2. Little Women
  3. Jane Eyre
  4. North and South
  5. The Canterbury Tales
  6. Tess of the D'Urbervilles
  7. Madame Bovary
  8. The Count of Monte Cristo
  9. The Woman in White
  10. War & Peace
  11. Lady Susan/ The Watsons/ Sandition
  12. Cranford
  13. The Age of Innocence
  14. Bleak House
  15. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall
  16. Great Expectations
  17. Mary Barton
  18. Tess of the d'Urbervilles
  19. The House of Mirth
  20. The Orestia

I am probably hoping for either The Woman in White (No. 9) or The Count of Monte Cristo (No. 8), but am dreading if I get No. 10 (War & Peace) or No. 14 (Bleak House)
