The Classics Club Lucky SPIN number!

Click for details about the Spin.

We promised you a spin number this morning, and here it is! Your Spin Number is -

14.

If you joined the game last week, find number 14 on your Spin List! That’s the title you are challenged to read by April 1, 2013. We’ll toss a post up on April 1 to see who completed the game.

As always, the prize is the reading experience. Details here.

In case anyone asks — it would be awesome if everyone posted about their Spin book on April 1. But that’s not mandatory or anything. If you want to, though, have at it! :)

Check in below if you played. What’s your #14 title? Are you glad, hesitant, excited about your title? Do tell!

    I just saw this spin now but I wanted to join in (I thought I’d change the date it should be read by to April 18 since I’m so late getting in on the challenge-I hope that’s okay!). I made my list (without cheating and glancing at the spin number, I swear!) and my book is Out of Africa by Isak Dinesen, a neutral book for me.

    I was very apprehensive about my title – Wings of the Dove by Henry James, clocking in at over 700 pages long. But I’ve already finished. Thanks for the motivation to tackle this one! I want to play Classics Spin again!

    My number 14 is Charlotte Bronte’s Villette…I was half hoping for a book I already owned, but any excuse to buy some more.

    Well, I will be reading A Streetcar Named Desire by T. Williams. I am happy to finally read it because all of my students read it their junior year. Of course, I told them I would be reading it this month, and they assured me I would enjoy it.

      I loved reading Streetcar for my American Lit class. I even bought a copy for myself when I saw one at a used bookstore, and I never buy plays. I really hope you enjoy it.

    Farewell to Arms is my unlucky spin. Tried reading this many years ago and got to about page five so this will be a challenge.

    The Old Man and the Sea. Whew, I was lucky! I had some chunksters on my list so I’m super happy to get this one.

    I’ll be reading Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams. I’ve read the sequel, and I really liked it. This was on my “neutral” list, simply because it’s not a new, exciting discovery process. I already know what Dirk is about. BUT if it’s anything like the second book, it’ll be smart, funny, and a quick read, so I have a chance in hell of finishing by April 1st!

    I’ll be reading The Secret Agent by Joseph Conrad, which will actually be a reread after reading it in college. I consider it a close escape since my #15 book was Ulysses!

    I got The Cement Garden by Ian McEwan. Consider some of the books on my list were giant chunksters, I got pretty lucky!
