Classics Club Spin #25

spinning+book.jpg
It’s time for another Classics Club Spin.
The rules are easy: compile your list of 20 books by Sunday 22nd November.
 
On that day a number will be randomly selected.
That’s the book you read.
 
You have until the 30th January 2021 to finish 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!

In honour of AusReading Month, this spin I am going to focus on the Australian classics lingering on my TBR pile and ipad.

  1. I’d love to see out outlier spinners do local spins – an all Canadian classic spin or South African or French or New Zealand or Singapore or Indonesia or India for example.

  2. That's the one I'm most nervous about Emma! I tried to read Voss when I was 19 and found it tedious and gave up less than a third of the way in. I'm hoping the 30+ yrs reading experience since then, will help with that!

  3. Some aren't very familiar with me either Joseph! In that I know of the author, but very little about their work. Many of the titles will be a complete mystery and hopefully a pleasant surprise 🙂

  4. I feel the same with our Spinners who chose lots of Ancient texts from Rome and Greece. I know the main ones, but they moved on beyond those years ago and are now delving into the lesser known Ancient classics. It makes me realise that one lifetime will not be enough to read them all!
