Hooray! It’s time for another Classics Club Spin!
How it works:
- Before next Monday 23rd September 2019, 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.”
- You have to read one of these twenty books by the end of the spin period.
- On Monday 23 September, 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 31st October 2019.
