Classics Club Spin #19

**UPDATED 11/24/2018

It’s that time again! Time for The Classics Club Spin #19.  I was on pins and needles the last Spin, hoping the number picked would be a book I was anxious to read. As I’m typing this post the nerves are settling in. 🙀

How does the Spin work? It’s as easy as 1-2-3. Really. Choose 20 books from your Classics Club list that you have yet to read and post the list to your blog before Tuesday, November 27th. And on Tuesday the randomly chosen Spin Number magically appears in your inbox.

Now all you have to do is read the book that corresponds to the number and review it by January 31st, 2019. Seriously,  can it get any easier?

Title Last First
Things Fall Apart Achebe Chinua
The House of the Spirits Allende Isabel
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings Angelou Maya
The Decameron Boccaccio Giovanni
Fahrenheit 451 Bradbury Ray
Jane Eyre Bronte Charlotte
The Pilgrim’s Progress Bunyan John
The Plague Camus Albert
The Alchemist Coelho Paulo
The Moonstone Collins Wilkie
The Three Musketeers Dumas Alexandre
The Invisible Man Ellison Ralph
One Hundred Years of Solitude Garcia-Marquez Gabriel
Jude the Obscure Hardy Thomas
The Outsiders Hinton S. E.
The Woman Warrior Hong Kingston Maxine
To Kill a Mockingbird Lee Harper
**C. S. Lewis Collection Lewis C. S.
Anna Karenina Tolstoy Leo
Arabian Nights

**UPDATEAfter I posted this, I did some thinking about reading the C. S. Lewis Signature Collection. It is doable to read all 7 books by January 31st, but I’m afraid I may end up with C. S. Lewis burnout. Having said that, I’ve decided to read a minimum of two: The Screwtape Letters and The Great Divorce .

Which book would you like to see me read for The Classics Club Spin?

🦃If you’re in the U.S. & celebrate Thanksgiving. Happy T-Day!!🦃

  1. Great list Erica. I’m going to risk seeming the know-it-all, because I made this mistake myself once, and I would want to know. Ralph Ellison’s novel is Invisible Man (without “The” in front). THE Invisible Man is a sci-fi-fi thriller by H. G. Wells.

    Invisible Man is an important work and a masterpiece. Enjoy!

  2. Interesting choices, Erica! I’ve read five in the original out of your list, and two in my childhood as abridged versions. I’ve kept away from a few on your list too!

    I too have C.S. Lewis in my spin list, but I’ve split up the collection into its individual parts. I don’t think I could finish his collection at all with the time limit given!!

    Looking forward to seeing what you get.:D


  3. Hi Erica, I also have Things Fall Apart and Pilgrim’s Progress on my spin list. And to be honest, I secretly wish PP will not get picked! 😛

    I wish you’ll get To Kill a Mockingbird or Three Musketeers. Both are fun, and in my favorite list.

    Good luck, and have fun! 🙂
