Classics Club Spin #26

Friday, April 16, 2021


Greetings! How are all you lovers all things Classic doing today? It's time for another Classics Club spin. We loved taking part in this for the previous round and also loved our book! Classics Club Spin #25 - Around the world in Eighty Days. Of course we are going to take part in this. Heck, we need to. It appears as if it will be the only time my Mommy actually reads her list on the The Classics Club ChallengeI think it's more of an adventure than an actual challenge and as it goes with many adventures - it's all about the journey and not the destination.

Luckily we always have the lovely creators of The Classics Club to keep us on our toes with the 

So how do you go about joining in the fun? It’s easy. At your blog, before this Sunday, 18 April 2021, create a post that lists twenty books of your choice that remain “to be read” on your Classics Club list.

This is your Spin List.

On Sunday 22nd November, they'll post a number from 1 through 20. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on your Spin List by 31 May 2021.

We can so do that! Here's our list: 

1. Little Women - Louisa May Alcott
2. Flowers for Algernon - Daniel Keyes
3. Memoirs of a Geisha - Arthur Golden
4. The Princess Bride - William Goldman
5. A tree grows in Brooklyn - Betty Smith
6. The Westing Game - Ella Raskin
7. The Lord of the Rings - J.R. Tolkien
8. Watership Down - Richard Adams
9. Charlotte's Web - E.W. White
10. Tuck Everlasting - Natalie Babbitt
11. Bridge to Terabithia - Katherine Paterson
12. All Creatures great and small - James Herriot
13. The BFG - Roald Dahl
14. The Call of the Wild by Jack London
15. A Confederacy of Dunces - John Kennedy Toole
16. Perfume: The story of a murderer - Patrick Suskind
17. The Unexpected Mrs Pollifax - Dorothy Gilman
18. The Secret life of Bees - Sue Monk Kidd
19. The Secret History - Donna Tartt
20. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks - Rebecca Skloot


One or two of these are a bit of a gamble and I'm not sure how we will feel if the dice falls on them. But I am not going to tell you which ones! If it does land on one of them, I will show my hand.

Good luck to all of you and may the odds be ever in your favor!

Lots of Love,

  1. There are several I read in there, including one that I tried to read but couldn't make it - but I'm stubborn, I'll try again. A very good list, including some I've never heard about but would love to ^^

    1. Hi IzaBzh! I'm not doing very well with my Classics Club! But I did love making the list and will definitely take part in the spin. I do want to read all the books on my list so I really don't mind where the dice falls.

  2. There's a bunch of fun things on your list, and #9 would be a good one! The Mrs. Pollifax books are so much fun. But I always like it when somebody gets something I haven't read, and #6 & #10 look very interesting to me!

  3. I'm hardpressed to choose here. Little Women, Princess Bride, Westing Game, Pollifax and LOTR are old favorites, and if you could choose, I'd recommend starting off with one of these. But it's a spin, and I hope you enjoy whichever number comes up!

    1. Hi Lex! I also really don't mind where the dice will fall. I still want to read all of these. Some will be re-reads, but as we all know, that is sometimes better than reading it the first time!

  6. I loved Watership Down...though Elza may not like it. The cat is rather a villain from the rabbits point of view.

    1. Hi there Elizabeth! You should take a look at all the books that are on the various lists. Some are less than 600 years old and really worth making the list.

We love hearing from you and if you talk to me, I'll purr back as soon as possible. Sometimes I take a cat nap and it might take a couple of hours or days, but never fear - the cat always comes back.
