My Classics Club Spin List

The folks over at The Classics Club have made a fun challenge for all the participants. The idea is that we each choose 20 books from our Classics Club list that we haven't read yet, and list them at our blogs, numbering them from 1-20. Next Monday, February 18th, a number will be announced, and we have to read whichever book on our list has that number by April 1st! Fun, eh?

So without further ado, here is my spin list (in five categories I made for myself):

Books I'm excited to read: 

1. Wives and Daughters
2. Our Mutual Friend
3. Their Eyes Were Watching God
4. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

Books I know almost nothing about: 

5. Middlemarch
6. The Bell Jar
7. Song of Solomon
8. Of Mice and Men

Books I'm afraid of: 

9. Moby Dick
10. The Sound and the Fury
11. Don Quixote
12. The Crucible

Books that would work great for A Modern March (hint, hint): 

13. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
14. The Old Man and the Sea
15. A Room of One's Own
16. A Room With a View

Books chosen randomly (by closing my eyes and pointing): 

17. Slaughterhouse-Five
18. Breakfast at Tiffany's
19. Agnes Grey
20. Bleak House

Well, wish me luck!


  1. Ooh good move incorporating Modern March!! I'll have to do that!!

    1. Thanks! I'm hoping one of those will get chosen!

  2. Inspired, I too have listed modern march in my list.

  3. Wow, you've got some pretty hefty ones there! I'm thinking I might have been too easy on myself with my list. Good luck with whatever you end up reading.

    1. Yeah, I'm thinking I probably should have gone easier on myself, actually...some of them are really long to read in just 8 weeks! Here's hoping I get one of the shorter ones.
