Your Lucky Spin Number Is…

If you joined the game last week, find number 2 on your CC Spin #30 List! That’s the CLASSIC you are challenged to read by 30th October

We know it can be hard to stay on track and enthused about your Spin Book for the whole journey. We plan to provide support and encouragement to all our CC Spinners via twitter, fb, instagram and goodreads. We hope you can join us in cheering everyone on to finish another fabulous classics reading experience!

If you’re struggling with your book, let us know. We’ll do everything we can to help you through. Perhaps one of your new moderators has read it, or we can link you up with another Classics Clubber who has.

As always, the prize is the reading experience. 

What’s Next?

Tell us below what your number 2 title is:

  • Are you feeling thrilled, hesitant or ‘meh’ about your title?
  • Check out our ‘Reviews By Members’ page for other Classic Clubbers who may have read your book recently. They may be able to help you if you hit a speedhump in your reading.
  • Cheer on your fellow Clubbers.
  • Take a pic of your book and pop it on Instagram or twitter.
  • If you can — it would be fabulous if everyone posted about their Spin book by the 30th October, 2022.
  • Then check back here to share your experience and add your review to our ‘Reviews By Members’ page.

  1. I have a question, being relatively new to the spins (this is only my 3rd!): Are the numbers chosen randomly, or do you make sure not to repeat? I’m wondering if people leave their lists in the same order from spin to spin, or randomize each time. (For example, since I swapped in a new one at #5 this time around to replace last time’s pick, does this mean that it’ll be another 19 spins before it ever comes up, or is it completely random?) I’m overthinking things, clearly. 🙂

    1. I don’t know about others but when I first started, I had a list of fifty books in chronological order. I chose the first twenty. Then, I read a couple and others moved up etc. So, even though I reuse the old list, as soon as I read one of the books, the others moved up. Now I have read all but three from the original list and have to add new ones every time. Again, I put them in chronological order. This time, the #2 was chosen and it was a book I just added.

      I’ve been taking part for a while and I the numbers were always different. Might be a coincidence.

        1. Exactly. And since we change the ones we read, our numbers also change, so it’s always like a lottery and we always are anxious to see which number comes up next.

    2. I think the classics club spin lists are personal. You can reorder them, add or subtract titles. No hard and fast rules. One year I only included female authors on the list. Now my list is populated with “Something by Faulkner” or “Something by some other author. I try to use the library and in the past I’ve had trouble getting my specific book in time at the library so that way I can choose another title by the classic author. No one is really paying attention to your lest except you, so create the list you want and then change it for the next spin if you decide to change it up. Good luck.

  2. I got “Something by Faulkner”. I am leaning toward As I Lay Dying because it is shorter than Absalom! Absalom!, which some article says is the best Southern novel ever written. Any opinions from you all which Faulkner novel I should read? I’ve never read him before.

  3. #2 on my list is SENSE AND SENSIBILITY. I have been wanting to read it for a while, so it is a good pick. On the other hand, I was hoping for something shorter, since I am currently reading ANNA KARENINA.

    1. awesome! I am actually listening to the series right now, am in volume 4.
      I highly recommend you listen to it. Especially the first book: Neville Jason is a stunning narrator, so good at doing all the voices, including the animals – for free on Hoopla through your public library if you are in the US
