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 –


If you joined the game last week, find number 4 on your Spin List! That’s the title you are challenged to read by October 1, 2013. We’ll toss a post up on October 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 October 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 #4 title? Are you glad, hesitant, excited about your title? Do tell!

  2. I’ve been pretty busy the past month but I can’t believe I missed spin #3.
    If it’s not against the rules, I’ll use my list from spin#2 to join in. Which means my book is Daphne du Maurier’s My Cousin Rachel.

  4. I got A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway and I am very excited! It was one of the books I was hoping for with this book roulette game. I just read Z: A Story of Zelda Fitzgerald and I am definitely in the mind set for A Moveable Feast. Yay!


  5. I got Desiring God by John Piper, one of my free choices; not a ‘can’t wait to read’ but it’s a book I’ve wanted to read for a long time so I’m in a good place with the spin result. Non-fiction always takes me ages longer to get through so I may well need till Oct 1 to finish it 😉


  6. I’m reading Orley Farm by Anthony Trollope. I’ve heard this is one of the best of the stand-alone novels, so I’m happy about that — though it’s more than 800 pages!!


    • Bleak House is brilliant, Dickens’ best, by far. It has everything — romance, comedy, drama, social satire, murder — it’s wonderful. Long, but wonderful!!!


    • I read Bleak House beacuse Classic Club Spin forced me to revisit Great Expectation and I loved both. Bleak House is filled with satire, goodness and a very sensitive look at the extremes of the Victorial socio-economic ladder. Its a wonderful read!


    • I felt the same — I read Mill on the Floss in high school and hated it, but I think I was too young to appreciate it. I read Middlemarch a few years ago and absolutely loved it, though the first 100 pages are a little dry. It’s definitely worth sticking with!!


      • Thanks Karen! I read Mill on Floss in school as well and you are right…. absolutely loathed it! Thank you for the encouragement though! I also read Great Expectation in school and disliked it. But when I read it recently for the Classic Club Spin…I just loved it! So I am inspired and I am hopeful! 🙂

  8. My spin book is Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier. I was kind of neutral about this one, though I loved Rebecca and consider it a favorite. Hopefully, I’ll have the same experience with this one!


  9. I’ll be reading The Crying of Lot 49 next month. What’s kind of cool about these spins, though, is it shows me what I really want to read next. I had a few titles from my list that I was crossing my fingers for. Those are shot to the top of my TBR list. That’s great. TBR clarity is always appreciated 😀


  10. Last time I got the super short Heart of Darkness and this time it’s Don Quixote! 🙂 Funnily I decided to start Don Q. a few days ago anyway, so I’m 100 pages in (a little more than 1/10)!! Happy reading, everyone!


  11. Last time I got one I was looking forward to, so it’s only fair that this time I got one I was dreading – Utopia by Thomas More. Oh well, it forces me to read it now rather than later 🙂
