Ah! It's Time for Another Classics Club Spin!

"Read the best books first, 
or you may not have a chance to read them at all."

The Classics Club has issued the announcement of the 33rd Classics Club Spin.

What is the spin?

It’s easy. At your blog, before next Sunday, April 21st, 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 April 21st, The Classics 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 Sunday, June 2nd

Let's see who can make it the whole way and finished their spin book!

I haven't read many classics this year, and I'd love to get back to working on my list, so I will be joining in this spin.

So here is my list.
