The Classics Spin #10

August 21, 2015 Whitney Meme 0 Comments

I haven’t participated in a classic spin in quite a while but needing a good kick in the pants to get motivated I figured would be the perfect opportunity.
  • Pick twenty books that you’ve got left to read from your Classics Club List.
  • Try to challenge yourself: list five you are dreading/hesitant to read, five you can’t WAIT to read, five you are neutral about, and five free choice (favorite author, rereads, ancients — whatever you choose.)
  • Post that list, numbered 1-20, on your blog by next Monday.
  • Monday morning, we’ll announce a number from 1-20. Go to the list of twenty books you posted, and select the book that corresponds to the number we announce.
  • The challenge is to read that book by October 23, even if it’s an icky one you dread reading! (No fair not listing any scary ones!)
