It’s time for another Classics Club Spin.
Before next Sunday, 11 December, create a post that lists twenty books of your choice that remain “to be read” on your Classics Club list. On that day 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 29 January, 2023.
Here’s my list:
- Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
- Lord Jim by Joseph Conrad
- In Cold Blood by Truman Capote
- The Case of the Gilded Fly by Edmund Crispin
- The Stars Look Down by A J Cronin
- Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe
- Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens
- The Lost World by Arthur Conan Doyle
- The Black Tulip by Alexandre Dumas
- The Birds and other short stories by Daphne du Maurier
- Strangers on a Train by Patricia Highsmith
- Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
- Daisy Miller by Henry James
- Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee
- How Green Was My Valley by Richard Llewellyn
- Fire from Heaven by Mary Renault
- On the Beach by Nevil Shute
- Tortilla Flat by John Steinbeck
- The Invisible Man by H G Wells
- Between the Acts by Virginia Woolf
I don’t mind which one is picked as I’m aiming to read all of them in due course! But which one/s would you recommend?

I also have Strangers on a Train, Nicholas Nickleby and Fire from Heaven on my list, but all at different numbers! Of your other books, I loved The Black Tulip and The Birds and Other Stories. Good luck!
I have read no 4, (fine, but I can’t remember much about it), no 14 (I thought it encapsulated that period of American history very well), and no 17 (a sombre but very moving read, and a really great book). Whatever comes up, I hope you enjoy it!
You have so many excellent ones here, Margaret! Strangers on a Train is classic suspense, and I’d be interested in what you think of that. And I remember loving Brave New World when I first read it. Of course, that was long ago, and I don’t know what I’d think of it now!
So many goodies here I’d be hard put to pick one! Nicholas Nickleby is one of my top favourite Dickens’, and I love Conan Doyle’s The Lost World. Sense and Sensibility, of course! I loved Lord Jim too, but I don’t see it as a festive read – takes a lot of concentration! I think you’re going to be lucky with almost anything from this list, actually…
Sense and Sensibility would be a lovely christmas read!
