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 –

19.

If you joined the game last week, find number 19 on your Spin List! That’s the title you are challenged to read by February 1, 2016. We’ll toss a post up on February 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 February 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 #19 title? Are you glad, hesitant, excited about your title? Do tell!

  2. I posted a list a couple months ago of books I want to read. I listed the books at random so I’m using that list to determine the book I will read for the Classics Spin. #19 is Hild by Nicola Griffith. I know that I am late announcing this, but I do want to complete this challenge.

  3. I got The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien which was on my list of books/authors I am dreading reading but want to read anyhow! Dreading because I read the LOTR series and I didn’t overly enjoy it which was strange because I adore the movies, and mostly I tend to prefer the books to the movies but LOTR was one of the few exceptions.

  5. My number 19 is the 2004 Pulitzer prize winning novel, The Known World, by Edward p. Jones. Not the hardest book on my list, though I did try to read it once before and quit before I got very far. I’m much more committed to finishing it this time.

  6. My #19 is War of the Worlds. This was in my dreaded/feeling obligated to read section and I guess it is better than Moby Dick. (Which I am sure is a great literary masterpiece…it’s just not one I am looking forward to reading)!

  8. Hoo boy. I got a book my German lit professor brother recommended: Simplissicimus, by Grimmelhausen, written 1688. It’s a long, meandery kind of story–like Don Quixote, with travel and adventure–only it’s also a savage satire of the Thirty Years’ War. What have I done?
