I just joined the Classics Club--so actually this is my first Classics spin.
I have to list 20 of my 50 classics that I want to read in the next 5 years, then on Monday October 3rd, the spin number will be announced and I have 2 months to read the classic that corresponds to the number on my list.
So here goes (I had no rhyme or reason for picking these):
1. Dr. Zhivago by Boris Pasternak
2. The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark
3. The Postman Always Rings Twice by James M. Cain
4. The Stars my Destination by Alfred Bester
5. The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin
6. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie
7. The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
8. Stoner by John Williams
9. Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison
10. Beast in View by Margaret Millar
11. I, Juan de Pareja by Elizabeth Borton de Trevino
12. Gaudy Night by Dorothy L. Sayers
13. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving
14. The Death of the Heart by Elizabeth Bown
15. The Call of the Wild by Jack London
16. It's Like This, Cat by Emily Neville
17. The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie
18. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery
19. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
20. The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco
I'm excited to see how this will work out for me. My first spin will be my first classic.
