Classics Spin #3

The Classics Club is hosting another Classics Spin! 

Here are the rules:

At your blog, by next Monday, Aug 19, list your choice of any twenty books you’ve left to read from your Classics Club list – in a separate post.

This is your Spin List. You have to read one of these twenty books in August & September. (Details follow.) So, try to challenge yourself. For example, you could list five Classics Club books you are dreading/hesitant to read, five you can’t WAIT to read, five you are neutral about, and five free choice (favorite author, rereads, ancients — whatever you choose.)

Next Monday, we’ll post a number from 1 through 20. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on your Spin List, by October 1. We’ll have a check in when October arrives, to see who made it the whole way and finished the spin book.

And here's my spin list:

1. Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
2. The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov
3. Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol
4. Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier
