........ however, if I can finish up some of my reads, I don't have much planned after them, AND I'm always trying to concentrate on my Classics Club List. So with these excuses in mind, I'm going to give it a whirl .....
The Rules for the spin are:
- Go to your blog.
- Pick twenty books that you've got left to read from your Classics Club list.
- Post that list, numbered 1 - 20, on your blog by next Monday.
- Monday morning, we'll announce a number from 1 - 20. Go to the list of twenty books you posted and select the book that corresponds to the number we announce.
- The challenge is to read that book by December 1st.
I used the random list organizer here to choose the 20 books from my master list. Then I tweaked them, so my list ended up looking like this:
- We (1921) - Yevgeny Zamyatin
