Classics Club Spin 11!

Cover for Far From the Madding CrowdClassics Club has announced another spin. This time I have exactly 20 items left on my Classics Club list. But I don’t want to end up with Henry VI Pt. III before Pt. II, so I’ve done some creative listing, picking an entry to list twice. Classics Club will pick a number on Monday, and that’s the book I’ll read. (Although to be honest, I’ve read some of these already and just haven’t posted my review yet.)

I do wish the Classics Club would stop making their spin deadline be the first of the month, because I can’t tell you how many times it has ended up being the same day as Literary Wives, which is the case this time. The reviews are to be posted by February 1, so I’ll have to post mine earlier. Anyway, can’t wait to find out one of the books I’m reading in December and January!

  1. Henry VI Pt. II by William Shakespeare
  2. The Vicar of Wakefield by Oliver Goldsmith

    I don’t worry too much about posting my review on the spin deadline day. I usually post mine earlier too. There are some great books on your list, as well as some that I’m not familiar with. I hope the spin chooses something you’re happy with on Monday!

      Me, too! They’ve chosen some lately that weren’t my favorites. But many of the books left on my list I read recently but just haven’t posted my reviews yet or they are old favorites that I just felt like I’d like to reread. I have read more than half of them at some time or other.
