It’s time for The Classics Spin #12.
Here are the directions:
At your blog, by next Monday, March 7, list your choice of any twenty books you’ve left to read from your Classics Club list — in a separate post.
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 May 2, 2016.
Here’s my list, awaiting the announcement of the lucky number:
- Adams, Richard. Watership Down
- Masters, Edgar Lee. Spoon River Anthology (1915)
- Agee, James. A Death in the Family
- Steinbeck, John. Of Mice and Men
- Cather, Willa. O Pioneers!
- Smith, Dodie. I Capture the Castle (1948)
- Dostoevsky, Fyodor. Crime and Punishment
- Koestler, Arthur. Darkness at Noon
- Fowles, John. The French Lieutenant’s Woman
- Tarkington, Booth. The Magnificent Ambersons
- Styron, William. Darkness Visible (1990)
- Hardy, Thomas. Far From the Madding Crowd
- Burns, Olive. Cold Sassy Tree
- O’Neill, Eugene. The Iceman Cometh
- James, Henry. The Beast in the Jungle
- Pym, Barbara. Excellent Women
- Lewis, Sinclair. Babbit
- Woolf, Virginia. Mrs. Dalloway
- Wilson, Sloan. The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit (1955)
- Nabokov, Vladimir. Pnin
The lucky number is 8! So I’ll be reading Darkness at Noon by Arthur Koestler by May 2. Fortunately, it’s relatively short.
My review is here.
