Classics Club Spin #6

  1. Ah, there are a bunch on your list with which I’m not familiar. I’ll look them right up.

    Of the few on your list that I’ve read, I really enjoyed Watership Down, Jane Eyre and The Canterbury Tales.

    Good luck with your spin pick!

  2. I have The Cantebury Tales on my list and I’m both excited about it and dreading it. I don’t feel like I have the mental power to give to it at the moment. I just finished Frankenstein and To The Lighthouse is one of my favourites, but Woolf’s style takes a little getting used to.

    Have a great spin, Fariba!
