Classics Club Spin #19

The Classics Club is holding its 19th Spin.
The idea is to list 20 of the books on your Classics Club list before November 27 when the wheel will turn and reveal the winning number. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on your Spin List, by January 31.

This is an extra special, super-dooper CHUNKSTER edition of the Classics Club Spin. We challenge you to fill this spin list with 20 of those HUGE books you’ve been putting off reading because you didn’t have enough time. With this spin we are giving you the time – nearly 10 weeks in fact – to tackle one of those imposing tomes on your classics shelf.

I don’t have many chunksters on my list, so I picked 10 and repeated them to make 20:

  1. The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
  2. The Tenant Of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë
  3. The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
  4. The Odyssey by Homer
  5. The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens
  6. Dead Souls by Nikolai Gogol
  7. The Nine Tailors by Dorothy L Sayers
  8. Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes
  9. Anatomy of a Murder by Robert Traver
  10. Middlemarch by George Eliot
  11. The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
  12. The Tenant Of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë
  13. The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
  14. The Odyssey by Homer
  15. The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens
  16. Dead Souls by Nikolai Gogol
  17. The Nine Tailors by Dorothy L Sayers
  18. Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes
  19. Anatomy of a Murder by Robert Traver
  20. Middlemarch by George Eliot

** Update: The Spin was #1. Happily I didn’t pack The Three Musketeers away for Christmas, just in case it was the lucky number.

  1. Is Anatomy of a Murder a chunkster? Oh dear, I included it on my list because I assumed being a crime novel it would be short! Anyway, I’m on a mission to force the whole world to read Dickens at Christmas, so my vote goes to Edwin Drood. Good luck! 😀
