It’s that time again! Time for The Classics Club Spin #21. 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. 🙀
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. Below is how my Spins have panned out so far.
- Spin #20 – The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis was a DNF. Not sure it’s for good, but I have to admit I really didn’t care for it. And I never started The Problem of Pain
- 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!
