  1. I enjoyed the Spin enormously last time around, so taking part this time too. I see we both have Bleak House in the list – and you also have Les Miserables – ouch! 🙂


  2. thanks for letting me know about the Spin, I'd like to participate this time! Good luck, glad that Little Women eeked it's way back into your list. 🙂 Gotta get my list together. Handmaid's Tale, Frankenstein and Robinson Crusoe are on my overall list too. I look forward to reading those three.


  3. Sounds exciting! I'm going to have to think about this one. I've got a bunch of review copies to make my way through, so I'm not sure I can take the time, but it would certainly be fun and challenging. I like your list; some of them would be on mine, too. I checked out the Classics Club and was relieved to see that re-reads are permitted (thank goodness, as there are books and plays I read years ago that I would love to read again.) So I may give this a try.


  4. I'm doing this spin for sure! Finalizing my list right now. Only putting one on it that I'm really dreading reading–On the Good Life by Cicero–but I ultimately want to read it, so it's a win-win, right?


  5. I have read a few of these, but many moons ago. I really need to read more classics. 😦 I just read My Antonia though, around the time I was reading all that Goolrick. And I am about to reread The Wind in the Willows, it is the perfect time of year. You should take your kids on a picnic near a riverbank, and start reading it together. :)Good luck on your spin! Maybe I will look it up and try it out, to give myself a bit of a kick in the pants to get reading classics more frequently. 🙂


  6. Another great list! Les Miserables, 1984, The Handmaid's Tale, Wuthering Heights – Oh. So. Good! I haven't read My Antonia, yet, but Willa Cather is one of my favorite writers. I also really liked Robinson Crusoe much more than I expected to… and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's nest is great! I'm hoping some people read it for the \”Beats of Summer\” event next month. I think you're going to be okay regardless of which number pops-up – great list! Good luck!


  7. I'm reading Les Mis now. It's a loooooong read 😛 but good so far!The Wind in the Willows is super fun! Rather silly but a great story :DLittle Women is my FAVORITE book!! I've listed it to re-read. It's been ages!We've got several CC titles in common :)Good luck!!


  8. Great list! I was surprised at how easily I was able to delve into Anna Karenina. I think it sounds much more intimidating than it is. Also- My Antonia is absolutely beautiful. I need to re-read it soon. This list reminds me that there are many more classics that I need to read.Rebecca @ The Key to the Gate


  9. Whew! You have some bricks on there. Good ones, though. I also have 1984 and My Antonia on my spin list. I loved Catch-22 and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest when I read them as a teen. I really need to read them again. I hope you enjoy whichever book you end up with!


  10. Great list! Of Mice and Men is such a good (and short) read! Watership Down?! The Handmaid's Tale?! Fingers crossed that we end up with good reads.
