The virtual Classics Club wheel was spun and it landed on lucky number
I was on pins and needles hoping the number picked would be a book I was anxious to read. Now, please take note I’m not ashamed to admit that I didn’t fully think this through, so I had to do some quick thinking/improvising/manipulating of the my list.
Woman what are you babbling about? You might be asking. Well, in my haste and excitement for creating my TBR for the Reading Classic Books challenge I’m hosting I only listed 12 books for the challenge prompts and neglected to come up with an additional 8.
Again, I didn’t think it through. And, having said that. Here is how I manipulated the list.
No. 1 became 13
Um. Yeah. In case you didn’t notice, I like Jane Eyre just a wee little bit. I’m super excited about this. It’s been years since I read the novel, but I did read a manga and a graphic novel version of it last year. Definitely wasn’t the same, but they were okay.
