Classics Club is back with spin #20

I am excited to do the latest spin from the Classics Club, especially since I am in the mood to read a bunch of classics that I haven’t gotten a chance to read yet.

The idea is to pick 20 books from your Classics Club list before Monday, April 22, and post them to your blog. On Monday, a number will be picked and you must read the book on your list that corresponds with that number. You have until May 31.

So last time (Spin #18) I included books that I was hesitant to read because I wanted a challenge. I ended up having to read THE book I was most hesitant about –Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand — and I LOVED it. However, with so many books to read for book clubs, I didn’t want myself under that type of stress. This time, my list of 20 includes all the books I want to get to sooner rather than later.

  1. In Cold Blood
  2. The Jungle Books
  3. To the Lighthouse
  4. Nightwood
  5. The Fountainhead
  6. David Copperfield
  7.  The Jungle
  8. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
  9. Wuthering Heights
  10.  An American Tragedy
  11.  The Good Earth
  12.  Watership Down
  13.  Shirley
  14.  Northanger Abbey
  15.  Brave New World
  16.  The Little Prince
  17.  A Tale of Two Cities
  18.  The Sound and the Fury
  19.  Treasure Island
  20.  Call of the Wild

I would be fine with any one of these books but I am leaning toward Brave New World, Shirley or A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.

  1. My current book has referenced Nightwood a few times – Djuna was a fascinating woman – I really must add this to my wishlist too….

    Happy spinning
