The Classics Spin 5

Classics ClubThe Fourth Classics Spin from the Classics Club. As with before, I must pick twenty books, then a random number will be selected and each of us must read the number listed at X number by April 1, 2014.

These Spins are really useful because other reads and activities have taken me away from the challenge often.

My challenge is that I own almost every one of these books so I must read them to clear them from my shelves.

  1. The Warden by Anthony Trollope
  2. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce
  3. Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie
  4. Bleak House by Charles Dickens
  5. North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
  6. Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell
