It’s time for another Classics Spin for any who are interested. What is the spin?
It’s easy. At your blog, by next Monday, Feb 10, list your choice of any twenty books you’ve left to read from your Classics Club list – in a separate post.
This is your Spin List. You have to read one of these twenty books in February & March
A number will be randomly drawn on Monday and I will then know my fate, I hope to read my spin book during March. I have decided to do this again as it has been such fun in the past. I know some people have books on their spin lists that they are dreading reading, There are no books I am dreading on my classic club list though there are a few I keep putting off. Therefore there aren’t any books on my spin list that I am really scared to read - life is too short to list books I’m not sure I want to read, there are one or two I am nervous about. Despite haing read Henry James before – I have been putting off re-reading him for years, and I feel a bit nervous about Mikhail Bulgakov and Slyvia Townsend Warner for different reasons. There are lots of books I would cheer to have selected though – fingers crossed for one of those – and some, that I no longer remember why I added them to my classic club list in the first place.
So here is my list for this time around:
1 The Yellow wallpaper – Charlotte Perkins Gilman
2 A sea grape tree – Rosamond Lehmann
3 The Land of Green Ginger – Winifred Holtby
4 The Rising Tide – Molly Keane
5 Lolly Willowes – Sylvia Townsend Warner
6.The Custom of the Country – Edith Wharton
7 In Connection with the De Willoughby Claim – Frances Hodgson Burnett
8 A rogue’s life – Wilkie Collins
9 The Leavenworth Case – Anna Katharine Green
10 One of Ours – Willa Cather
11. Agnes Gey – Anne Bronte
12 Mansfield Park – Jane Austen
13 All Passion Spent – Vita Sackville West
14 Doctor Thorne – Anthony Trollope
15 Washington Square – Henry James
Non British writers
16 The Heart of a Dog Mikhail Bulgakov
17 Smoke – Ivan Turgenev
18 Sunlight on a broken column – Attia Hosein
19 The Phantom of the Opera – Gaston Leroux
20 Sapphira and the Slave Girl – Willa Cather
Looking forward to finding out my fate.
