Spinning the Classics

Classics Club is hosting spin #26. I love the randomness of having the club choose my next classic read by a spin of the wheel, so here is my list:

  1. Crome Yellow, Aldous Huxley, 1921
  2. The Deep Blue Goodbye, John D. MacDonald, 1964
  3. Delta Wedding, Eudora Welty, 1946
  4. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, Philip K. Dick, 1968
  5. Double Indemnity, James M. Cain, 1936
  6. Doctor Zhivago, Boris Pasternak, 1957
  7. The Grand Sophy, Georgette Heyer, 1950
  8. Harriet Hume, Rebecca West, 1929
  9. I, Robot, Isaac Asimov, 1950
  10. Islam: A Short History, Karen Armstrong, 2000
  11. The Left Hand of Darkness, Ursula K. Le Guin, 1969
  12. Madame Bovary, Gustave Flaubert, 1856
  13. Martin Chuzzlewit, Charles Dickens, 1844
  14. The Member of the Wedding, Carson McCullers, 1946
  15. The Moonstone, Wilkie Collins, 1868
  16. New Grub Street, George Gissing, 1891
  17. Rabbit, Run, John Updike, 1960
  18. The Violent Bear It Away, Flannery O'Connor, 1960
  19. The War of the Worlds, H. G. Wells, 1898
  20. Where Angels Fear to Tread, E. M. Forster, 1905
One of these is already on deck to be my lunch-time book. We will see what gets picked on Sunday.


  1. I have read #2 and #5
    I would like to read #4, #7, #11, and #15.
    I had never heard of Crome Yellow so I looked it up, and that sounds very good.

  2. The chosen number was 11 so I will be reading Left Hand of Darkness by 31st May, 2021.

  3. I look forward to your review of that book. I have a copy of that one and The Lathe of Heaven, but have only read A Wizard of Earthsea.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
