Classics Club Spin #31 List


Sunday, September 18, is the next Spin day! Get your list ready and check in on Sunday to see which number is drawn. By Sunday, create a post that lists twenty books of your choice that remain “to be read” on your Classics Club list. On that day 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 October 30, 2022.

I’m sticking close to the list from the last spin–changing the order and, obviously, adding a book to replace Pastoral by Nevil Shute (which I need to finish) which was last spin’s winner and a couple of others–it’s Fall so I’m ditching a summer book. Also dropping one that just doesn’t appeal at the moment.

  1. A Son at the Front by Edith Wharton
  2. The Squire by Enid Bagnold
  3. Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome (Serial Reader)

  1. You have some great books on your list. I loved Miss Ranskill Comes Home, The Light Years, Lost Horizon and Three Men in a Boat, so I hope you get one of those!


  2. I loved The Blue Castle! I read Lost Horizons ages ago and don’t remember much about it, but I know I enjoyed it. We have a couple of books in common too (Picnic at Hanging Rock, O Pioneers), and I have a different book by Daphne DuMaurier on my list too. I’m excited to see what we get!!


I enjoy reading your comments!
