Classics Club Spin #30

The Classics Club has announced another spin. To participate, members post a numbered list of 20 of the books from their personal lists, to be posted by this Sunday, June 12. The club announces a number, and that determines which book to read by Sunday, August 7.

  6. Miss Mole by E. H. Young
  7. Weatherley Parade by Richmal Crompton
  8. Sleeping Murder by Agatha Christie

    I’ve read six of these and particularly loved The Moonspinners and Sleeping Murder. Good luck!

    Ooh, it has to be Sense and Sensibility – come on, Spin Gods, do your duty! 😀

    Oh, Miss Mole is SO sweet! I’ve read a couple on this list (although I’m never sure if I’ve read a Christie or not – have to take a look at the plot to tell)! Return of the Native… a couple bloggers have said things that worry me if that gets picked. But I’m sure it will be fine. Happy Reading!

      That’s interesting. Hardy is fairly dark at times, but I have always liked him.
