It's time for the latest Classics Club spin, Numero 26! You probably know the rules. I'm running low on books from my original list, (and skipping a couple for a spin) but I have started assembling a second list so I'll pick a few of those and then there will be some doubling up.
Let's go straight to the list of books:
From my first Classics Club list:
1.) Samuel Butler/The Way of All Flesh
2.) Willa Cather/A Lost Lady
3.) Willa Cather/One of Ours
4.) W. Somerset Maugham/The Razor's Edge
5.) Sir Walter Scott/Count Robert of Paris
6.) R. L. Stevenson/The Black Arrow
7.) Honoré de Balzac/Cousin Bette
8.) Johann von Goethe/Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship
9.) Henryk Sienkewicz/Quo Vadis
10.) George Bernard Shaw/Major Barbara
From that new Classics Club list:
11.) R. L. Stevenson/Travels With A Donkey
12.) Barbara Tuchman/A Distant Mirror
13.) John Ruskin/Unto This Last
14.) Thomas de Quincey/Lake Poets
15.) Dee Brown/Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee
And some stacking the deck:
16.) Willa Cather/One of Ours
17.) W. Somerset Maugham/The Razor's Edge
18.) R. L. Stevenson/The Black Arrow
19.) Johann von Goethe/Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship
20.) Henryk Sienkewicz/Quo Vadis
I think that chapter-a-day readalong of Quo Vadis (which I didn't originally commit to) may going on now so that would timely, but other than that I don't have any strong preferences.
Have you read any of these? Which look good to you?
And happy spinning to all!
