Classics Club Spin #25

It’s that time again! Time for The Classics Club Spin #25.  I have been such a slacker when it comes to reading the books on my Classics Club list, and if I’m being honest there aren’t too many books on the list that I want to read at the moment. So I’m going to stray from the list a little or maybe a lot, I just don’t know yet.

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 Sunday, November 22nd

Classics Club Spin #21

It’s that time again! Time for The Classics Club Spin #21.ย  I was on pins and needles the last Spin, hoping the number picked would be a book I was anxious to read. So, here we are again and the nerves are settling in AGAIN. ๐Ÿ™€

I’ve only been participating in the Spin since #17 and I have to say it’s not been a particularly great or fruitful experience, but I keep trying because there has got to be a classic that I haven’t read that I’m going to finish and enjoy. ย Below is how my Spins have panned out so far.

  • Spin #19 – Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achabe was a DNF. This one broke my heart. I really enjoyed this in high school, but for some reason I really didn’t care for it
  • Spin #19 – Giovanni’s Room by James Baldwin was also a DNF. This was one of the last Baldwin works I haven’t read and oh my gosh I don’t even think I got 25% of the way through
  • Spin #17 – 1984 by George Orwell was chosen and I tried, but was not in the mood for dystopian literature. DNF’d but not for good

But, I’m going to give it a go – AGAIN!
