Reading the Classics Spin, take two

The Classics Club Spin challenge

To encourage our reading the classics, The Classics Club (TCC) has created yet another spin. The first round was back in February. While I haven’t quite finished The Man in the Iron Mask, I’m ready to spin again and see how I do. We’ll have two months (May and June) to finish our selected book.

I’m using the same list of books as before with the addition of a new book #14 to replace the  last spin choice.  We’ll see what number is chosen by the club and we’ll all know what book I am to read. So, here goes:

    1. The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins (1859) RR
    2. The Confessions of St. Augustine by St. Augustine of Hippo (397 – 398)
    3. The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne (1874)
    4. A Tramp Abroad by Mark Twain (1880)
    5. Life on the Mississippi by Mark Twain (1883
    6. Tales of Mystery and Imagination by Edgar Allan Poe (1908) RR
    7. The Man Without a Country by Edward Everett Hale (1863) RR
    8. The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain (1881) RR
    9. Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand (1897) RR
    10. The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells (1898) RR
    11. The Time Machine by H.G. Wells (1895) RR
    12. The Story of Reynard the Fox by F.W. von Goethe (1845) RR
    13. Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathon Swift (1726) RR
    14. The Little Flowers of St. Frances of Assisi  by anonymous (14th century)
    15. The Prisoner of Zenda by Anthony Hope Hawkins (1894) RR
    16. Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne (1870) RR
    17. The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins RR
    18. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley (1818) RR
    19. Dracula by Bram Stoker (1897) RR
    20. Faust by Johann Wlfgang von Goethe (1808)

    Good luck with your spin – Poe should be interesting. (I got Tess as a reread :-)

    I haven’t even read Tess as a first read. Good luck! I ended up getting good old Edgar so we’ll both be doing rereads.
