So the wheel has spun for the 18th spin of the Classics Club and the number that was picked was 9. What am I reading? Wump, wump, wump … Atlas Shrugged. You guessed it, this is one of the hesitant reads. So much for beginner’s luck.
It’s not that I don’t want to read this, I do. I just wasn’t expecting to read it right now. Merely because it’s a doozy in its length and probably one of the longest ones on my list. 1,069 pages. Hence why I keep putting it off. But if I could get through Fountainhead in high school (for fun), I’m sure I can manage this one. I guess fate is pushing me to get it over and done with. Though I’m not sure how I am going to get through this and The Golden Bowl by Henry James (my September read for Modern Classics book club) in the same month. This is going to take some strict reading.
If I had not scrambled my list, my pick would have been The Jungle Books by Rudyard Kipling. *sigh* Oh well, maybe next time.
Someone asked me what the other hesitant reads were on my spin list. They were both of the Dickens novels, David Copperfield and A Tale of Two Cities; Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte; and An American Tragedy by Theodore Dreiser. And it’s not even that they are my hesitant reads. I want to read them all, but these are the one that I can wait to read since there are so many others I want to get to first.
