CC Spin #20

Hello, Clubbers!

It’s time for another Classics Club Spin!spinning bookWhat is the spin?

It’s easy. At your blog, before next Monday 22nd April 2019, create a post that lists twenty books of your choice that remain “to be read” on your Classics Club list.

This is your Spin List.

You have to read one of these twenty books by the end of the spin period.

Try to challenge yourself. For example, you could list five Classics Club books you have been putting off, five you can’t WAIT to read, five you are neutral about, and five free choice (favourite author, re-reads, ancients, non-fiction, books in translation — whatever you choose.)

On Monday 22nd April, we’ll post a number from 1 through 20. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on your Spin List by 31st May, 2019.

We’ll check in here on the 31st May to see who made it the whole way and finished their spin book!

What’s Next?

  • Go to your blog.
  • Pick twenty books that you’ve got left to read from your Classics Club List.
  • Post that list, numbered 1-20, on your blog before Monday 22nd April.
  • We’ll announce a number from 1-20. 
  • Read that book by 31st May 2019.

This is meant to be a fun, social way to read another book from your classics club list. We’re very relaxed about how you set it up, we simply want you to read more classics!

Sometime this week, at your blog, you might post something like:

My Book Spin List for the Classics Club –

  1. Jane Eyre
  2. The Inferno
  3. Picnic at Hanging Rock
  4. Oliver Twist
  5. Clarissa
  6. Gone With the Wind
  7. Don Quixote
  8. Testament of Youth
  9. Richard III
  10. The Iliad
  11. Jude the Obscure
  12. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
  13. The Master and Margarita
  14. Dracula
  15. The Home and the World
  16. Sense & Sensibility
  17. Madame Bovary
  18. The Diary of Anne Frank
  19. Antigone
  20. The Tale of Genji

(Obviously, YOU choose what books YOU want to list, in what order.)


Next Monday?

We will announce a number from 1 through 20. When we announce it, go to your Spin list. Find that number, read (and hopefully, review) the book listed for that number by 31st May 2019.

So, if (for example) we announce #14, and if the above list was your Spin List, you’d have to read Dracula.

The prize, of course, is the reading experience 🙂

When we announce the number next week, come back and tell us your spin title.

Who’s in?

  1. My timing is bad because I only saw the notification about the spin list late last week from other CC members but have already committed to a very chunky read for May – June.

  2. What a wonderful challenge. I love classic books!

    I am not a member (yet), but I have published my list here last week.

    Looking forward to see which book I am about to read.

    Have a good day everyone!
