Classics Club Spin #20
It's the Classics Club spin time again! Pick twenty books from your Classics Club list and by the power vested in the mighty random number generator one of them leaps to the top of the TBR pile.
Having gotten off lightly with the chunkster spin, I am not going to put either of the two remaining monsters on this spin list. This will be my fourth spin. The random number generator has been good to me so far, but why tempt fate, amirite?
1.) James Baldwin/Giovanni's Room
2.) Willa Cather/A Lost Lady
3.) Boccaccio/The Decameron (The Decameron slot)
4.) John Galsworthy/The Forsyte Saga
5.) Oliver Goldsmith/The Vicar of Wakefield
6.) Henry James/The American
7.) Malcolm Lowry/Under the Volcano
8.) Virginia Woolf/The Waves (The Virginia Woolf slot 1 2 )
9.) Walter Scott/Count Robert of Paris
10.) Edith Wharton/The Custom of the Country
11.) Bertrand Russell/The History of Western Philosophy
12.) Sylvia Plath/The Bell Jar
13.) James Baldwin/Notes of a Native Son
14.) Willa Cather/One of Ours
15.) Hermann Broch/The Death of Virgil
17.) Edith Wharton/House of Mirth (The Edith Wharton slot)
18.) George Bernard Shaw/Major Barbara
19.) Richard Brinsley Sheridan/The School For Scandal
20.) Edmund Spenser/The Faerie Queene
May should actually be a pretty good reading month, so one of the longer ones might be nice: Boccaccio, Plutarch, Russell, Spenser. But we'll see...
Following Brona's example I put books that were related in the same slot as other spinners. If anybody else sees any matches, it would be fun to match up.
And the winner is...#19. Richard Brinsley Sheridan's The School For Scandal
