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 –

10.

If you joined the game last week, find number 10 on your Spin List! That’s the title you are challenged to read byย January 1, 2014. We’ll toss a post up on January 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 January 1. But that’sย not mandatory or anything. If you want to, though, have at it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Check in below if you played. What’s your #10 title? Are you glad, hesitant, excited about your title? Do tell!

  5. My #10 is Brazilian Adventure by Peter Fleming – a 1933 travel memoir where the author goes on an expedition to the interior of Brazil, looking for a long-lost English explorer. Just found out that the author was the older brother of Ian Fleming! This one was in my “neutral” category, but to be honest, I think I just ran out of “neutral” books from my list and threw this one in that category because I couldn’t remember what it was about off the top of my head. Now that I’ve refreshed my memory, I’m quite excited about it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Initial relief that it wasn’t no 7 (Ulysses!) but no 10 is still a doozy for me – The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky!!
    But at least I’m sharing the Dostoyevsky reading experience with with Bree @The Things We Read ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Well, I’m happy and disappointed at the same time. I’ll be reading Bleak House by Charles Dickens. I’m happy because it is next up for me after David Copperfield (so I’m not really having to fit an extra book into my plans) but, on the other hand, I was hoping to get one of the ones that I need a little push to read.

    Oh well, next time!

    • I really liked The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, and reading the description of The Ballad of the Sad Cafe, it sounds like it could be really good. I look forward to your thoughts on it.

  9. Mine is Dubliners, which is a re-read for me (some of the books on my list are books I read as assigned reading in school and want to revisit on my own terms). I’m looking forward to it!

  10. My Spin Choice is from my dread list…Go Down, Moses by William Faulkner. It’s seven interrelated stories set in Yokhnapatawpha County (almost got it right on the first try!). I am very excited, but a little nervous because Faulkner can really get you twisted around. Funnily enough, if I had gone with my initial list, I STILL would have been reading Faulkner–A Light in August though.

    • I remember liking A Light in August – I haven’t read Go Down, Moses. Good luck! I like Faulkner but you’re right that you can get a little lost in his prose, as marvelous as his prose can be.

  11. Great! I got The Earth by Emile Zola. It’s on the long side, but it’s Zola, and I normally love his work. This will be my third Zola this year, so that’s a good thing. I look forward to reading it!
