Classics Club Spin

The Classics ClubIt’s time for another Classics Club Spin. I probably shouldn’t be doing this as I’ve plenty to read for the 20 Books of Summer Challenge without adding another book and most of the books on the following list are quite long.

The Spin rules:

  •  List any twenty books you have left to read from your Classics Club list.
  • Number them from 1 to 20.
  • On Monday the Classics Club will announce a number.
  • This is the book to read by 1 August 2016.

My List

  1. Lorna Doone: A Romance of Exmoor by R D Blackmore
  2. The Black Robe by Wilkie Collins
  3. Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe
  4. Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens
  5. Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
  6. Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens
  7. Silas Marner by George Eliot
  8. Parade’s End by Ford Maddox Ford

  1. Oh, you have so many excellent choices here, Margaret! I’ve the feeling that you’ll have a good experience no matter what the spin is. I hope you enjoy!


  2. Margaret, while I haven’t read Edith Wharton’s “Age of Innocence,” I liked her “House of Mirth” a lot. I thought Lily Bart was a terrific character. I also still have to read Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
