Classics Club Spin #3

Thursday, August 15, 2013

Hooray, it is time for another Classics Club Spin. I love this extra challenge to work on my classics list!

Here's how to play (from the website):

At your blog, by next Monday, Aug 19, list your choice of any twenty books you’ve left to read from your Classics Club list – in a separate post.This is your Spin List. You have to read one of these twenty books in August & September. (Details follow.) So, try to challenge yourself. For example, you could list five Classics Club books 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.)
Next Monday, we’ll post a number from 1 through 20. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on your Spin List, by October 1. We’ll have a check in when October arrives, to see who made it the whole way and finished the spin book.
 In the past I have come up with categories and listed them. This time, I am just going straight through the unfinished and un-started books on my list. So without further ado, here is mine:

1. The Custom of the Country by Edith Wharton
2. Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton
3. Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray
4. Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
5. A Pair of Blue Eyes by Thomas Hardy

7. David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
8. Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
9. The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
10. In Our Time by Ernest Hemingway
11. Travels with Charley: In Search of America by John Steinbeck
12. Death Comes for the Archbishop by Willa Cather
13. Sir Gawain and the Green Knight
14. Summer by Edith Wharton
15. The Awakening by Kate Chopin
16. Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy
17. The Portrait of a Lady by Henry James
