Classics Club Spin #25

It’s time for a new Spin! (Actually, I’m a few weeks late to the party). The Classics Club does these fun events to get us all ready those classics that have been on our TBR’s, shelves and Kindles just begging to be read! These are a lot of fun, but owning to being back in school at my ancient age and other things in family life, I have not yet finished my book for Spin #24, Imperial Woman by Pearl S. Buck. Since I’ll be on a break from classes most of the time, MAYBE I’ll finish it and the new book? If not, I’ll shoot for finishing the new book. I’ve tweaked my list a bit–I have so many on mine, that I put ones I thought I’d actually be able to read during the time period. With the holidays in the middle I didn’t want a long slog through something I wasn’t enjoying.

The rules for Spin #25:

* List any twenty books you have left to read from your Classics Club list.
* Number them from 1 to 20.
* On Sunday 22nd November the Classics Club will announce a number.
* This is the book you need to read by 30th January 2021.

  1. I don’t know if I can participate in this spin, but I would like to join in a future one. I just have to finish moving and arranging my books so that I know where all the classics are! Good luck!


  2. Good luck finishing book 24 in the coming weeks! I believe in you. 🙂

    I also love the variety in your list. Wow! I am hoping to join the Classics Club in 2022 (that seems so far away, but it really isn’t…) so I’m loving reading everyone’s spin lists. Y’all are showing me what amazing diversity there is in the classics.
