The Booktube Spin #5

Hi, folks!

It’s time for another Booktube Spin, hosted by Rick! Inspired by our beloved Classics Club Spin, the idea is to list 20 books (they don’t have to be classics), and Rick will spin a wheel and a choose a number on January 14th. Then, we have until March 31st to read the spin book and post about it. For more details, go to Rick’s channel:

  1. Thanks for sharing! I was not planning to do a challenge or anything remotely stressful vis a vis reading this year, but I have been curious about doing you tube book review and I think this is a good way to give it a shot! I will see what I can dig up!
