I’m getting my spin selections in just under the wire! Over the weekend I announced that I was joining The Classics Club, just in time to participate in one of their spins. What is a spin? Well, you can read all about it here, but to brief: participants choose twenty books from their master list that are yet to be read, number them 1-20, and then The Classics Club chooses a random number. Whichever book on your list is paired with that number is the one that you read! Easy peasy, huh?
So here’s my list:
|1||Austen, Jane||Northanger Abbey||1817|
|2||Bronte, Anne||Agnes Gray||1847|
|3||Bronte, Anne||The Tenant of Wildfell Hall||1848|
|4||Cather, Willa||O Pioneers!||1913|
|5||Chopin, Kate||The Story of an Hour||1894|
|6||Hurston, Zora Neale||Their Eyes Were Watching God||1942|
|7||Jackson, Shirley||Come Along With Me||1968|
|8||Lee, Harper||To Kill a Mockingbird||1960||Y|
|9||L’Engle, Madeleine||A Wrinkle in Time||1962||Y|
|11||O’Connor, Flannery||The Violent Bear It Away||1960|
|12||Read, Miss||Thrush Green (TG #1)||1959|
|13||Read, Miss||Village School (FA #1)||1955|
|14||Rhys, Jean||Wide Sargasso Sea||1966|
|17||Smith, Betty||A Tree Grows in Brooklyn||1943|
|18||Undset, Sigrid||The Wreath||1920|
|19||Woolf, Virginia||Jacob’s Room||1922|
|20||Woolf, Virginia||A Room of One’s Own||1929|
To be honest, I’m really hoping that number 9 is called because I need to read A Wrinkle in Time for my book club at work! But I’d also be thrilled if A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, A Room of One’s Own, or The Wreath were to be called too!
Won’t you join along??!
