Ring the bells, spread the news far and wide!
The Classic Club Spin #15 is here!
For details on how to play, click on the link here.
The main things you need to know though, are to compile your list of 20 books by this Friday – the 10th March.
On that day a number will be randomly selected.
That’s the book you read.
You have until the 1st of May to complete your book and review it.
Join in the fun by visiting the other players and commenting on their lists.
It’s a great way to meet like-minded bloggers and explode your TBR classics wishlist!
I’ve also had fun by reading my book with other Classic Clubbers during many of the spins.
Encouragement and support always welcome!

20. The Way We Live Now by Anthony Trollope
‘I had a farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong Hills . . . Up in this high air you breathed easily . . . you woke up in the morning and thought: Here I am, where I ought to be.’
From the moment Karen Blixen arrived in Kenya in 1914 to manage a coffee plantation, her heart belonged to Africa. Drawn to the intense colours and ravishing landscapes, Blixen spent her happiest years on the farm, and her experiences and friendships with the people around her are vividly recalled in these memoirs.
Out of Africa is the story of a remarkable and unconventional woman, and of a way of life that has vanished for ever.
