Classic Club Spin #15

Great… Another spin that chances are I will fail at! Hopefully, I will see it as helping me with my Classics Club list.

This time I started from the bottom and numbered from the bottom up instead of starting with the top of my list. The Spin Goddess chooses her number this Friday, March 10th, so I will come back then and let you know which number was chosen and what I will be reading. The spin review should be posted by May 1st. This time all 20 look good, so I don’t have a preference.

If you are new to these spins in particular or the Classics Club in general, go here.

ETA on March 10th: The Spin Goddess has spun and has chosen #12, which means I will be reading Dracula! And btw, I will read this during the daylight hours, that just happen to be getting longer now. Phew… 🙂

  1. I have a checkered history with the Spins myself – I tend to get the books only finished or posted about well after the Spin is over–but it always gets me to read a book that hadn’t been on the radar at the moment, so I consider that a win.

    Dracula is a favorite of mine–a real page turner, and I love the way it’s sectioned up to make you want to keep reading. Enjoy!

    1. I am a real aficionado of the older Dracula films so I am curious about the book. Thank you for the encouragement!

      And hopefully I will finish and post it because, I agree, I like how these Spins put something on my plate I may not have chosen at the time.

  2. I’ve read (& mostly loved) several of your books – House of Mirth, Age of Innocence, Brave New World, Vanity Fair & Portrait of a Lady. Would like to read more James at some point.

    I’m trying to read Woolfe’s books in chronological order – I’m only up to no 2 😊

    Good luck on Friday
