  1. I'm seeing folks participating in this spin and I am ambivalent about joining it. I used to read the classics for high school/college, but I don't know if I want to commit to 50 classic books at this stage in my life. I gravitate toward more "fluff" reads. Have fun with it and hope you get a reread or one you are anxious for!

    1. It's fun, but I have to admit, I am probably not going to finish this challenge all the way. Lol. I have found a few new favorites though, like Ethan Frome!

  2. I loved The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, so hope you get that one! Just can't seem to read One Hundred Years of Solitude though.. have tried 2 or 3 times and just can't get beyond page 50! Good luck with the spin!

  3. We have 3 in common on this spin list. I didn't check the numbered order, but it would be funny if we were reading them at the same time. So many good titles I didn't think of, that I see here. The Blind Assassin, The Poisonwood Bible, The Secret Garden. Good choices.


I love hearing from people, don't be shy! I would love to hear what you think! I always reply back, although it takes me a bit longer these days due to the little guy.
