The Classics Spin

The Classics Spin!
The Classic Club is hosting a mini reading challenge, entitled The Classic Spin.  For the Spin I (and any other joiners) choose and number twenty books from their classics list and post it on their blog.  The hosts will pick a number at random and I will read the book that corresponds with that number.
So without further ado…
  1. Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
  2. Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell
  3. Jezabel’s Daughter by Wilkie Collins
  4. A Modern Mephistopheles by Louisa May Alcott
  5. Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
  6. The Odyssey by Homer
  7. Ada by Valdimir Nabokov
  8. Pere Goriot by Honore de Balzac 
  9. The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
  10. The Beautiful and the Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald
  11. The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe
  12. A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole
  13. The Story of My Life by Helen Keller
  14. The Story of the Trapp Family Singers by Maria von Trapp
  15. Lord of the Flies by William Golding
  16. Animal Farm by Gorge Orwell
  17. Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
  18. Watership Down by Richard Adams
  19. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
  20. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith

    I have Wives and Daughters at No 2 as well – I'd be happy if that comes up. Good luck with the draw and hope you like the chosen one.
