The Classics Spin

The Classics ClubIt’s time for another Classics Spin. I didn’t manage to read the book from the last Spin but as we have until 5th January to read the selected book, I’m hoping to do better this time.

The rules are the same as always:

  • Pick twenty unread books from your list.
  • Number them from one to twenty.
  • On Monday a number will be drawn.
  • That’s your book, to read by 5th January.

Here’s my list:

  1. Lady Susan/The Watsons/Sanditon by Jane Austen
  2. Lorna Doone: A Romance of Exmoor by R D Blackmore
  3. Out of Africa by Karen Blixen
  4. No Name by Wilkie Collins
  5. Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
  6. Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens
  7. Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens
  8. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
  9. The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot
  10. Parade’s End by Ford Maddox Ford
  11. Where Angels Fear to Tread by E M Forster
  12. The Man Who Would Be King by Rudyard Kipling
  13. The Call of the Wild by Jack London
  14. Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  15. One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  16. Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham
  17. Black Beauty by Anna Sewell
  18. Barchester Towers (Barsetshire Chronicles, #2) by Anthony Trollope
  19. The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton
  20. The Voyage Out by Virginia Woolf

These are all books from my TBR books which will help me reduce the numbers – books I’ve had for years in some cases!

  2. What an amzing list that is! I’ve only read 5 I think. Having read Beryl Markham’s flying book I’d really fancy Out of Africa too as she knew the Blixens well and mentions them a lot.
