Spin Number 10
We have a new SPIN challenge.
Spin Challenge Number 10
Below are the rules. The same as the last spin.
Pick twenty books that you’ve got left to read from your Classics Club List.
Try to challenge yourself:
list five you are dreading/hesitant to read,
five you can’t WAIT to read,
five you are neutral about,
and five free choice (favorite author, rereads, ancients — whatever you choose.)
Post that list, numbered 1-20, on your blog by next Monday. (August 24th)
Monday morning, we’ll announce a number from 1-20. Go to the list of twenty books you posted, and select the book that corresponds to the number we announce.
The challenge is to read that book by October 23, even if it’s an icky one you dread reading! (No fair not listing any scary ones!)
