Your Lucky Spin Number Is…

If you joined the game last week, find number 18 on your CC Spin #33 List! That’s the CLASSIC you are challenged to read by 30th April 2023

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?

  • Cheer on your fellow Clubbers.
  • Take a pic of your book and pop it on Instagram or twitter.

  1. I read A Gathering of Old Men by Ernest J Gaines. And I’m thrilled that I discovered a film was adapted from the book, with a great cast.


  2. I got Ordinary Families by E. Arnot Robertson, I’ve never read anything by the author, apparently it’s a love or hate book, I’m intrigued and wonder how I will feel about it.

  3. My book is Childhood, Boyhood, Youth by Leo Tolstoy. It has sat on my shelf for some years and probably would have remained there a few years more if not for this spin! Quite pleased to be pushed into actually reading it.

  4. I got The Last of the Mohicans. I’ve read it before, at least 40 years ago. I remember liking it, but thinking Hawkeye was just a little too good to be believable. And I was pretty young and naive then. We’ll what curmudgeon me thinks of it.

    1. I have finished the book. It had been a recommendation by another blogger and it was a good one, see here.

      I just noticed that I haven’t added anything to your “reviews by members” list. I apologize and will try to add them soon.


    1. I love this book. I recommend the 60th-anniversary edition. The foreword by Neil Gaiman is a beautiful tribute to Bradbury’s beautiful tribute.

  5. I’m going to be reading Now, Voyager by Olive Higgins Prouty. Very happy with this as it is one of my all time favorite classic Bette Davis movies! My post is up for today’s reveal at

  6. I am feeling a bit hesitant about my Spin title, which is The Optimist’s Daughter by Eudora Welty from 1972. I was born and raised in the southern US and so was Eudora Welty; I am from Birmingham, Alabama and she lived in Jackson, Mississippi. The book is set in New Orleans, Louisiana and Mississippi. I am hoping I will like it and it is under 200 pages, so that is good.

  7. I got Every Man a King by Huey P. Long – the only non-fiction on my spin list. I’m looking forward to reading this autobiography of The Kingfish!
