A Classics Club Spin

Choose twenty books for February and March, numbering from one to twenty. A number will be chosen and that specific book will be read by April 1st.

  1. Oy, lots of Lovecraft love in your list :) I should read that too. Nice list! I also have Ibsen's Doll House in my big CC list and can't wait to tackle it. Good luck with the spin!

  2. I just finished The Great Gatsby so I could remind myself about the story before seeing the Baz Luhrman movie. I loved it to pieces (again), so I hope for your sake it's no. 7!!


It is much appreciated for those who visit this secret place. Thankyou for taking the extra moment to add a comment. Have a lovely, secret day!
