Classics Club Spin #28

For anyone unfamiliar with the Classics Club, you can check them out here. The Spin is a list of 20 books you choose from your list and number 1-20. On October 17th, the Spin Gods will announce a number from 1-20 and that corresponding number on your list is the book you read to be completed by December 12th.

  2. I’d be tempted to join you for The Mill on the Floss or Mary Barton. Brave New World would be so relevant for our times. I’d like to read that again soon. But, of course, I wish you the absolute best reading experience for whatever book you get!

  3. This is such a lovely list, some of my all time favourites are on it – The Mill on the Floss, Mary Barton, Importance of Being Ernest – and I’ve just finished Vanity Fair which was brilliant and did take me about 2 months to read! Hope you get one you love
