The Classics Spin #25

Hi, folks!

It’s time for another Classics Club Spin! By now, you know the drill: participants post a list of 20 books on their Classics Club list. On Sunday November 22nd, a random number will be selected by the Club. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on your Spin List, by January 30th, 2021.

  1. Okay, I will need to go and Goodreads all of your list. I don’t recognize any of them! Gosh, am I such a novice? Yes, I am. But hey – that’s I’m doing here! Read more, learn more…

    May the dice fall where it may!

    Here’s my Elza Reads #CCSpin 25


  2. Juliana, you’ve got some more obscure classics on here and I’m afraid I haven’t read any of them, but I have good things about Ann Radcliffe, so I hope you get The Mysteries of Udolpho. Good luck! 🤞😃
