The Classics Club is sponsoring a fun game called The Classics Spin. Here’s how it works:
- Pick twenty books unread books from your Classics Club List.
- Post that list, numbered 1-20, on your blog by next Monday.
- Monday morning, we’ll announce a number from 1-20. Select the corresponding book from the list.
- The challenge is to read that book by April 1, even if it’s an icky one you dread reading!
I honestly don’t think I have any “icky” books on my list, but there are have several I’ve put off because others caught my attention. Some are Persephones, some are Viragos, and then there are some miscellaneous classics.
