Classics Club Spin #18

So I apparently joined the Classics Club just at the right time because they are starting a new spin.

The idea is to list 20 of the books on your Classics Club list before Aug. 1. Then the wheel will turn and reveal the winning number. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on your Spin List, by Aug. 31.

So when I initially heard about the spin, I had made a list that consisted of books that I could either get through quickly or was excited to read. NOT SO FAST! I then saw I had to fill in some categories.

5 books you are dreading/hesitant to read
5 books you can’t WAIT to read
5 books you are neutral about
5 books which are free choice

In the name of the game, I honestly put some of the more dreaded reads on my list. And to make it even more of a gamble, I scrambled my list (I’m a glutton for punishment). Of course, I’m hoping not to fall into the dreaded/hesitant to read category, but I guess everyone is. It’s probably why they are challenging us to put some on there. I see how this game works 😉
