Classics Club Spin #31

Who can resist a CC Spin? I can’t, even though I have very spotty success, I did finish the last two I entered. And since three is a charm I am back for more!

The Bare-Bones Basics:

  • Go to your Classics Club list.
  • Pick twenty books that you’ve got left to read.
  • Post that list, numbered 1-20, on your blog before Sunday, 18th September.
  • They will announce a number from 1-20. 
  • Read that book by 30 October, 2022.
  • If you need more information on the Spin go here. If you don’t know and want to know, “What in the heck is the Classics Club?” Go here.

I am hoping for the Thackeray, Woolf, or either of the Cathers, but I chose all 20 especially from my list, so any would be fine.

And here is my list:

1. Evelina (1778)

Willa Cather

  1. Nice list! Quite a few of these are books I want to read as well. I have read The Mayor of Casterbridge and really liked it. I have tried some Virginia Woolf and struggled with her fiction. I read Mrs. Dalloway and tried to read The Waves. I have read A Room of One’s Own and liked it but it’s non-fiction. 🙂


  2. Although I’m not doing the club any more I always have fun rooting for others to finish their Spin. I have read about half of these. Of the ones I haven’t, I would most want to read Death Comes for the Archbishop. I hope you get something that you enjoy.
