The Classics Club Spin

The Classics ClubIt’s time for another Classics Spin. To take part in the Spin you:

  • List any twenty books you have left to read from your Classics Club list.
  • Number them from 1 to 20.
  • Next Monday the Classics Club will announce a number.
  • This is the book you need to read during February and March!

Here’s my list chosen by using a random number generator:

  1. North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
  2. Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
  3. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
  4. The Old Wives Tale by Arnold Bennett
  5. Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
  6. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
  7. Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery
  8. Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
  9. The Man Who Would Be King by Rudyard Kipling
  10. Lord Jim by Joseph Conrad
  11. Parade’s End by Ford Maddox Ford
  12. Lorna Doone: A Romance of Exmoor by R D Blackmore
  13. Notre-Dame of Paris by Victor Hugo
  14. No Name by Wilkie Collins
  15. The Making of a Marchioness by Frances Hodgson Burnett
  16. Where Angels Fear to Tread by E M Forster
  17. Out of Africa by Karen Blixen
  18. Walden by Henry James Thoreau
  19. Moby Dick by Herman Melville
  20. Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton

I don’t really mind which one comes up in this Spin, although there are some I’d prefer over others. What would you chose off this list?

  1. I’ve actually read Lorna Doone.. I was given a beautifully crafted edition of it when I was quite young and I treasure it. If you read it, I think that will make two of us. I’ve read others on your list too, but think I would choose Out of Africa – loved the movie.
