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 –

8.

If you joined the game last week, find number 8 on your Spin List! That’s the title you are challenged to read by May 2, 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 May 2. But that’s not mandatory or anything. If you want to, though, have at it! 🙂

Check in below if you played. What’s your #8 title? Are you glad, hesitant, excited about your title? Do tell!

  1. Hope it’s not too late to do this… I just joined and set up my 50 list, and the 20 list.
    My #8 book is Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery

  2. My #8 book on the list was Edith Wharton’s The Age of Innocence. I’ve done a little research and now I am pretty psyched about reading it. Bonus, it was a Pulitzer Prize winner in 1921 AND if was written by a woman, other challenges I am participating in this year. Check out my intro post, please. The Age of Innocence

  3. I got The Beautiful and Damned. I have really enjoyed the two books of Fitzgerald’s that I’ve read before (The Great Gatsby & Tender is the Night), so I’m looking forward to this one 🙂

  4. I was secretly hoping for a Bronte. And look: The Tenant of Wildfell Hall! This will be a first read for me and I am really looking forward to it.

    Congratulations to all the participants of this spin. See you in May if not before 🙂

  5. I got Oblomov by Goncharov. I’ve had it for years and bought it because it is a lovely edition. I haven’t a clue what it’s about, but it’s 515pages long!

  6. I got Pedro Páramo, about which I know almost nothing, not even how long it is–don’t know whether to be intimdated or not! Happy reading to all those participating!

    1. I’ve The World According to Garp and The Hotel New Hampshire. I remember them as being a little quirky and it would seem the Irving has a thing for bears!

  7. Little Dorrit, by Charles Dickens is my Spin book. I wish I was looking forward to it more, it’s a book I’ve been dreading.

    1. It’s quite good I think. One of my favorite of Dickens novels. Sure it’s Dickens so it will be dense but it’s truly enjoyable. After you’re done reading it definitely watch the 2008 miniseries which might be even better than the book. 😉

  8. Let it ‘go down to the wire’. Just 1 hr before deadline. Entered the @ourclassicsclub Spin # 12. Book is: Sappho: Stung by Love Poems OMG!

  9. I got The Hunchback of Notre Dame – I think it’s the book I’ve been dreading the most. I’ll give it another try.

    1. Yay! I did not like it, but most people seem to. Maybe because Elizabeth Gaskell is not one of my favourite authors. And I don’t really know why, since a lot of people like her. I am advised to read “Wifes and Daughters”! Maybe this will do it for me. Although I have started it and did not come too far!

    1. I’ve heard it’s really good (I’m putting it on my tentative list for my next 50 Classics Club selections!)
