TCL Joins the Classics Club Spin #ccspin #31!

To find out more about this unique reading challenge, please visit The Classics Club Blog for the rules and link-up post.



After joining the previous two spins and enjoying it, I’ve decided to join once again! I now have a longer list than just 20 classic books that I’ve long wanted to read, but that just means more for later. In my case, these are all books I already own, either in print, or already have ready and waiting to be read on my Kindle.  So, without any further ado…

Here’s my list:

  1. Mr. Pim Passes By: A Play in Three Acts by A.A. Milne
  2. Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell
  3. Daisy Miller: A Study by Henry James
  4. Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
  5. Offshore by Penelope Fitzgerald
  6. The Lifted Veil by George Eliot
  7. The Beautiful and the Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald
  8. Casino Royale by Ian Fleming
  9. The Member of the Wedding by Carson McCullers
  10. Diaries of Adam and Eve by Mark Twain
  11. The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber & Other Stories by Ernest Hemingway
  12. Mandala by Pearl S. Buck
  13. Round the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne
  14. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
  15. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  16. Tender is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald
  17. The Lady of the Camellias by Alexandre Dumas fils
  18. The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie
  19. The Man of Property – The Forsythe Saga Vol. 1 by John Galsworthy
  20. A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway

Quite an eclectic list, right? And just so you know, some of these have been on my shelves for several decades, and some of them are very old editions, which are bound in real leather!

What’s Next?

On Sunday, September 18, they will announce a number from 1 through 20. When they announce it, I will go to my Spin list, find that number, read (and hopefully, review) the book listed for that number by the 30th of October, 2022.

How about you?

Will you be joining in the next Classics Club Spin?
