The Classics Club

The Classics Club Spin #20

It’s time for another CC Spin, The Classics Club Spin #20. Yes, this is the event that made me decide it was time to redo my entire Classics Club list. This spin is based on that new list.

Here’s the procedure: By Monday, April 22nd, I am to create a list of 20 books from my Classics Club list and post it here. On Monday the CC bloggers will choose and post the lucky number. I must then read the book with that number from my spin list by May 31st.

Check back here next week for the announcement of which book I’ll be reading.

Update: The Lucky Number Is . . .

Number 19!

So I will be reading The Iceman Cometh by Eugene O’Neill. I never think to grab a play to read (probably because there are very few plays on my shelves), so this is a good thing.

Look for my review some time before May 31st.
