Classic Spin Reading Challenge

I've just heard about the Classics Club Spins (now in its 24th iteration), and I’ve determined to use the opportunity to get one of those TBR books off my list.

What is the Spin?

It’s easy. At your blog, before next Sunday 9th August 2020, create a post that lists twenty books of your choice that remain “to be read” on your list of classic books.This is your Spin List. You have to read one of these twenty books by the end of the spin period.
On Sunday 9th August, the Classics Club will post a number from 1 through 20. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on your Spin List by 30th September, 2020. I’ll come back and highlight the one that corresponds with that number on my list. 

My Spin List.

  1. Madame Bovary by Gustav Flaubert
  2. Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
  3. To the Lighthouse by Virginia Wolff

  1. That's a fun list. Great Expectations is one of my favorite novels. Happy spinning!
