Classics Club Spin

It’s time for another Classics Club Spin. Before next Sunday 18th April, 2021, create a post that lists twenty books of your choice that remain “to be read” on your Classics Club list. This is your Spin List. You have to read one of these twenty books by the end of the spin period. On Sunday 18th April the Classics Club will post a number from 1 through 20. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on your Spin List by 31st May, 2021.

I have just 5 books left on my list, so I’ve repeated the list four times:

  1. Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
  2. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
  3. Parade’s End by Ford Maddox Ford
  4. Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  5. Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollop
  6. Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
  7. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
  8. Parade’s End by Ford Maddox Ford
  9. Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  10. Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollop
  11. Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
  12. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
  13. Parade’s End by Ford Maddox Ford
  14. Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  15. Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollop
  16. Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
  17. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
  18. Parade’s End by Ford Maddox Ford
  19. Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  20. Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollop

  1. Love in the Time of Cholera is an unusual book, Margaret. If you get that one, I’ll be really interested in what you think of it. Your other choices are great, too, and I hope you’ll enjoy whichever one comes up the winner.

  2. I have The Count of Monte Cristo on my tbr shelf for this year. Have you seen the size of it? I bought it because Bill Bailey recommended it in one of those Christmas ‘what’s your favourite book of all time?’ articles in one of the online newspapers. Stupidly, I had no idea of its size. I probably ought to start now and if I’m lucky I might have finished it by Christmas… 2030!
