It’s easy. Before next Sunday, April 18, 2021, create a post that lists twenty books of your choice that remain “to be read” on your Classics Club list.
This is your Spin List.
You have to read one of these twenty books by the end of the spin period.
Try to challenge yourself. For example, you could list five Classics Club books you have been putting off, five you can’t WAIT to read, five you are neutral about, and five free choice (favourite author, re-reads, ancients, non-fiction, books in translation — whatever you choose.)
On Sunday 18th, April, the club will post a number from 1 through 20. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on your Spin List by May 31, 2021.
Here is my Spin List:
1, 6, 11, 16. Favorite Folktales from Around the World (collected and edited by Jane Yolen)
2, 7, 12, 17. Love in a Cold Climate by Nancy Mitford
3, 8, 13, 18. Elizabeth and Her German Garden by Elizabeth von Arnim
4, 9, 14, 19. The Portable Dorothy Parker
5, 10, 15, 20. The Thurber Carnival
I chose the five books I most want to read next and then added them four times. Let's see where the spinning wheels stops.
Are you spinning?
