Classics Club Spin #27–REVISED

63269-classic2bspin[1]

I’m LATE for another Classics Club Spin. By tomorrow, Sunday July 18, 2021, create a post that lists twenty books of your choice that remain “to be read” on your Classics Club list. This is your Spin List. You have to read one of these twenty books by the end of the spin period. Tomorrow, Sunday July 18th, the Classics Club will post a number from 1 through 20. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on your Spin List by August 22, 2021. #ccspin 

Note: I revised this after realizing I’d given away one book and forgot some recent Kindle purchases. She what happens when you are running late?

  1. I’ve only read one of these, The Sun Also Rises, which I enjoyed, but you have to like that whole lost generation thing, which I do. I’ve read a bunch by D.H. Lawrence but not Mornings in Mexico. Interesting list!

  2. So many good ones on there–The Blue Castle is lovely, though the end may be a bit much; I. Claudius was excellent, and Frenchman’s Creek such fun. Less than Angels and Lost Horizon are very good too. I see plenty from my TBR on your list as well–Loving Spirit particularly
