Classics Club Spin

The Classics ClubIt’s time for another Classics Spin.

  • 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 by 15th May.

I decided to list all the books by Charles Dickens, George Eliot, Elizabeth Gaskell and Gabriel Garcia Marquez that are on my list and then added Moby Dick because it will fit in well with a book I’m planning to read soon, In the Heart of the Sea by Nathaniel Philbrick, which was inspired by Moby Dick.  I added the other books randomly.

  1. Lorna Doone: A Romance of Exmoor by R D Blackmore
  2. Out of Africa by Karen Blixen
  3. No Name by Wilkie Collins
  4. Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens
  5. Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
  6. Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens
  7. The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens
  8. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
  9. Adam Bede by George Eliot
  10. The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot
  11. Romola by George Eliot
  12. Silas Marner by George Eliot
  13. Parade’s End by Ford Maddox Ford
  14. Mary Barton by Elizabeth Gaskell
  15. North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
  16. Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell
  17. Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K Jerome
  18. Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  19. One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  20. Moby Dick by Herman Melville

I quite fancy reading Dickens soon, so hope one of his is the spin book.

  1. I hope you get a Dickens as you would like. I am currently reading The Pickwick Papers. Off your list I have read Nicholas Nickleby but that was years ago and more recently for the club I read Oliver Twist which I really enjoyed.


  2. You’ve listed five Dickens novels that I haven’t read yet, so I’ll be interested to know what you think if you get one of those. I loved No Name and Romola – and Three Men in a Boat is hilarious!
