The Classic Club Spin #32

Time for another classic spin with the Classic Club. Head over there for a full set of rules, they are simple.

Update your Spin list, or create one with 20 classic novels your want to read. It should be published before before next Sunday 11th December, 2022. I am at the very last minute this time, but I always keep an updated list under my Challenge label.

On Sunday 11th, December, the Classic club will post a number from 1 through 20. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on your Spin List by the 29th January, 2023.

I am eagerly looking forward to see which classic comes up. I did manage to read the last challenge which was Death Comes to the Archbishop by Willa Cather. Let's see what comes up this time. Here is my list.

So many great books, I've read nine of them already. My favourite is Doctor Zhivago, if you would get that, I'd have A Farewell to Arms. My <a href="">list</a>.

Dr Z has been on my list for some years. I was hoping to read it during December, since I have themed my own challenge as Russian authors. I am currently reading The Idiot and I think I will not have time to read another one. Maybe in 2023.
