The Classics Club Lucky SPIN Number!

Click for details about the Spin.

We promised you a spin number this morning, and here it is!

Your Spin Number is . . .

12!

If you joined the game last week, find number 12 on your Spin List! That’s the title you are challenged to read by May 1, 2017. We’ll toss a post up on that day to see who completed the game.

As always, the prize is the reading experience. Details here.

In case anyone asks — it would be awesome if everyone posted about their Spin book on May 1. But that’s not mandatory or anything. If you want to, though, have at it! 🙂

Check in below if you played. What’s your #12 title? Are you glad, hesitant, excited about your title? Do tell!

The Classics Spin #15!

Spins! So far!

Hello, Clubbers!

It’s time for another Classics Spin!

What is the spin?

It’s easy. At your blog, before next Friday, March 10th, create a post to list your choice of any twenty books that remain “to be read” on your Classics Club list.

This is your Spin List. You have to read one of these twenty books in March & April. (Details follow.) Try to challenge yourself. For example, you could list five Classics Club books you are dreading/hesitant to read, five you can’t WAIT to read, five you are neutral about, and five free choice (favorite author, re-reads, ancients — whatever you choose.)

On Friday, 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 May 1, 2017. We’ll check in here in May to see who made it the whole way and finished their spin book!

Do you have that?


  • Go to your blog.
  • Pick twenty books that you’ve got left to read from your Classics Club List.
  • Try to challenge yourself: list five you are dreading/hesitant to read, five you can’t WAIT to read, five you are neutral about, and five free choice (favorite author, re-reads, ancients — whatever you choose.)
  • Post that list, numbered 1-20, on your blog before next Friday.
  • Friday morning, we’ll announce a number from 1-20. Go to the list of twenty books you posted, and select the book that corresponds to the number we announce.
  • The challenge is to read that book by May 1, even if it’s an icky one you dread reading! (No fair not listing any scary ones!)

As usual, this is all for fun and, of course, the “rules” are, as always, very relaxed. Really, you can make up your own rules. We don’t actually care. Just play along with us and read a classic! 😛

So, today (or any time this week) at your blog, you might post something like:

My Book Spin List for the Classics Club  –

  1. Jane Eyre
  2. Pride and Prejudice
  3. Crime and Punishment
  4. Oliver Twist
  5. Clarissa 
  6. Gone With the Wind
  7. Ulysses 
  8. Emerson’s Collected Essays
  9. Richard III
  10. The Iliad
  11. Jude the Obscure
  12. Leaves of Grass
  13. The Monk
  14. Dracula
  15. The Importance of Being Earnest
  16. Sense & Sensibility
  17. The Tempest
  18. The Diary of Anne Frank
  19. Paradise Lost
  20. Pilgrim’s Progress

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


Next Friday, we will announce a number from 1 through 20. When we announce it, go to your Spin list. Find that number, and read the book listed for that number by May 1.

So, if (for example) we announce #2 — if the above list was your Spin List, you’d have to read Pride and Prejudice by May 1.

Make sense? As always, the prize is the reading experience. 🙂

When we announce the number next Friday, come back and tell us your spin title — weeee!

Anybody in? If so, you can link to your spin lists below. Happy week(end)!

The Classics Spin #14

Spins! So far!

Good morning, Clubbers!

It’s time for another Classics Spin for any who are interested. What is the spin?

It’s easy. At your blog, by next Monday, October 3, list your choice of any twenty books you’ve left to read from your Classics Club list — in a separate post.

This is your Spin List. You have to read one of these twenty books in October & November. (Details follow.) So, try to challenge yourself. For example, you could list five Classics Club books you are dreading/hesitant to read, five you can’t WAIT to read, five you are neutral about, and five free choice (favorite author, rereads, ancients — whatever you choose.)

Next Monday, 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 December 1, 2016. We’ll have a check in here in December, to see who made it the whole way and finished the spin book.

Do you have that?


  • Go to your blog.
  • Pick twenty books that you’ve got left to read from your Classics Club List.
  • Try to challenge yourself: list five you are dreading/hesitant to read, five you can’t WAIT to read, five you are neutral about, and five free choice (favorite author, rereads, ancients — whatever you choose.)
  • Post that list, numbered 1-20, on your blog by next Monday.

  • The challenge is to read that book by December 1, even if it’s an icky one you dread reading! (No fair not listing any scary ones!)

Ha ha! 😀 All for fun, and of course, the “rules” are, as always, very relaxed. Really, you can make up your own rules. We don’t actually care. 😛
