The Classics Club

#CCSpin #19

Have you heard? It’s spin list time baby! Woot! I preformed horribly last time and didn’t finish my book. It got slightly boring…and it didn’t really seem to be moving forward in the storyline. I do still want to finish it though…eventually. This Spin is a bit different. Not only is it themed for “Chunksters” but we also have all the way into January to finish! YES! Maybe this will make the difference for me!

If you haven’t participated before, it’s very easy. Just pick 20 books from your classics list and tune in next week to see which number is drawn…then you have to read that book! ๐Ÿ˜€ Also, if you haven’t joined the classics club, give it some thought. It’s great fun. Please feel free to add any questions about the club or event in the comments below. Also, you can read more about joining here.

I'm an avid reader and love most all books, but my favorite genres tend to be mystery, adventure, science fiction and classics. Genres I tend to shy away from include romance, contemporary fiction and chick lit. If Iโ€™m not actually reading books, Iโ€™m probably at work shelving them at my local library.
