  1. I read my spin Rumble Fish by S.E. Hinton in November. I ended up listening to the audiobook through Libby. It wasn’t as good as The Outsiders, of course, but I still enjoyed it. It would make a great, quick read to fulfill a reading challenge, as well. I didn’t do a full review, but I did mention my thoughts in My November Wrap-Up.

  2. Not only did I finish my Spin on time, I posted before the due date. Yay me 🙂

    I read The Matriarch (1924), by G.B. Stern and thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s a sweeping generational tale beginning in the 18th century and goes through to the 1920s and explores the ups and downs of the large Rakonitz family of European Jews. A gem if I do say so!


    1. Sure. I have my classics club list of classics I want to read that I am always sort of working on, then when a spin is announced I look through it and decide which 20 I want to include on the spin. This past spin I included author’s names rather than titles because I wanted to make sure I could find something at the library and my specific title might not be available for check out. Welcome!

      1. Oh yes. I do have my classics club list already and have the post up on my blog. I was just confused if the mention in this post of the upcoming spin was the announcement and I needed to get the list of 20 ready or if there would be an announcement post in March and that’s when I get my list ready. Just a bit confused with being new and all. 🙂


  3. Yes I did, though I haven’t posted any review yet. I got A Man Lay Dead, by Ngaio Marsh. I was very excited about this one, but was actually a bit disappointed. It was a bit complicated and muddled. Should I persevere and try volume 2?


  4. My #12 was the Penguin Book of Modern British Short Stories. I have about 10 pages left. I waited too long to start. But it still counts if I finish tonight, it still being the 12th here, yes? 😉
