Classics Spin #27

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, July 18th, 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 August 22nd, 2021.

  1. I’m currently reading (well, listening to) Claudine at School so I hope you get that one! I also loved The Semi-Detached Couple so I can highly recommend it.
