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 . . .

12!

If you joined the game last week, find number 12 on your Spin List! That’s the title you are challenged to read by May 1, 2017. We’ll toss a post up on that day 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 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 #12 title? Are you glad, hesitant, excited about your title? Do tell!

  1. I never got around to posting my list but I did make one before the number was drawn. I’ll be reading The Good Companions by J B Priestley. It will be unknown territory; I know very little about the book and it will be my first Priestley. I’m hoping for a nice surprise!

  3. Yikes – Out of Africa! One of the ones I’ve been dreading, I’ve heard it’s difficult to read.
    Oh well, that’s why I put it on the spin, I guess, to encourage me to read it….

    Good luck everyone.

  4. Lorna Doone by RD Blackmore! I’ve been putting off reading this one for years because my Dad always said it was his favourite book, so I’ll feel horribly disloyal if I don’t like it. So hopefully I’ll love it!

    • I hope you do enjoy it 🙂 I have Call of the Wild on my list for the very same reason: it was my Dad’s favourite book as a boy. He tried and failed to get me to read it when I was young; I feel I should try it but after so many years I’d hate for it to be an anti-climax.

  5. Tales of the South Pacific by James A Michener. This is his first novel and a Pulitzer prize winner, published in 1947. I always feel a bit disappointed with the book I get on the SPIN. I am not sure why. I placed it on the list. Isn’t that silly? Anyway. I look forward to reading this author again.
