It’s time for another Classics Club spin.
When I went to put this spin together during the week, I realised I had finished my CC List #2. How on earth did I miss that? Pure and simple – slackness! I’d forgotten to update my links for most of this year.
The good news is that I had a great deal of fun planning my brand new, shiny CC List #3 in preparation for participating in my 32nd CC Spin. Yes you read that correctly. I have participated in EVERY single Classics Club spin, along with Jean @Howling Frog.
What is a CC Spin?
- Simply pick twenty books that you’ve got left to read from your Classics Club List.
- Post that list, numbered 1-20, on your blog before Sunday, 11th December.
- A number from 1-20 will be announced.
- Read that book by 29th January, 2023.
As many of you may already know, I like to buddy read with you whenever I can, so if one of our books match, I am happy to switch them around so our numbers match too.
An (A) in front of a title indicates an Australian classic.

My Previous 31 Spin Results:
One book was a DNF as I lost it during a move.
Three were barely so-so reads and another couple were curiosities that didn’t really appeal to me but I could see their merits. The rest were delights. From the surprise packages to the known favourites.
I can’t wait to see what spin #32 brings me.

Adam Bede it is! And a buddy read with Sue @Me My Shelf & I. Perfect. I haven’t read any George Eliot for nearly two decades, therefore delighted to be given a gentle push into priortising it over my summer holiday break.
