CC Spin #30

Hello, Clubbers!

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

It’s easy. At your blog, before next Sunday 12th June, 2022, 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 Sunday 12th, June, 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 the 7th August, 2022.

We’ll check in here on Sunday the 7th August, 2022 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 Sunday, 12th June.
  • We’ll announce a number from 1-20. 
  • Read that book by 7th August, 2022.

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 Sunday?

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 7th August.

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.

  1. I am away and mostly out of phone and internet range, so am having trouble posting to my blog. However I do have my list on a spreadsheet and will update when I get home next week. I promise not to switch my books around when I see the spin!

  2. Thanks for the invitation. I’m always in.

    My xxx.

    And, I have a question. Do we add a link to any of our classic books we read or just the ones that were on the original classics list?

  3. I received one of those posters where you scratch off the classic book when you read it. This one is a wide range of books that someone considered classics – some old titles, some more recent, and a variety of audiences. But okay, I’ve committed to completing this. Here is the link to my Spin and the entire list (that is left as of the date of the post.) https://finishingtheseries2020.blogspot.com/2022/06/classics-club-reading-challenge.html

  4. Wow, there are some pretty major titles on your list! Not for me this time as I haven’t put my second list together yet, but looking at all the lists is part of the fun!
