I saw the Classics Club was doing another Classics Spin, and while I’m technically too late, I haven’t seen what number they drew. The idea is to make a list of 20 of the books left on my Classics Club list (cough allofthem cough) and then a random number will be chosen and I’ll have to read that book by July 1st. This seems like a good kick in the pants, so here’s my list:
- Ariel by Sylvia Plath
- The Monk by Matthew Lewis
- The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
- The Lost World by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
- Gigi by Collette
- A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf
- Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
- East of Eden by John Steinbeck
- Respiración artificial by Ricardo Piglia
- The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
- Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne
- North & South by Elizabeth Gaskell
- H.D.: Collected Poems by H.D.
- The Razor’s Edge by W. Somorset Maugham
- The Old Man & The Sea by Earnest Hemingway
- Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton
- My Ántonia by Willa Cather
- Los pazos de Ulloa by Emilia Pardo Bazán
- Walden by Henry David Thoreau
- Emma by Jane Austen
Okay, now that I’ve made my list, which book will it be?
A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf
Oh, good choice Calssics Spin! I have a notebook with the cover of A Room of One’s Own on it that I’ve been toting around and using as a journal. I’ve been dreading the idea that someone ask me about my opinions on A Room of One’s Own, since I’ve never read it. Off to the library!
