Classics Spin Update

This morning the number for the Classics Club Spin Challenge was revealed. The lucky (or perhaps, not so lucky for some) number that was chosen is 14. For me this corresponds with The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens

At the moment, I'm not sure how I feel about this selection. I'm happy and excited but then I'm a tad apprehensive. I mean, it's Dickens. Sometimes I love him, others I hate him. At the moment I love him and I don't want Edwin Drood to send me flying in the opposite direction. Anyway, let's see how it goes.

Check back on April 1st to see if I manage to finish it. And no doubt I'll have some rambling thoughts to share. You can always count on me for rambling thoughts.

For those participating, what was your spin selection? Good, bad or downright ugly?



  1. Ooh, did you know that Fanda is hosting a Dickens month this month?
    I'm reading Tale of Two Cities for it, it might give you a boost needed to get through the book? I need help with Dickens as sometimes I love him and sometimes I hate him.

    1. Thanks for the link! I did not know this, I shall follow it from now on. Good luck with Tale of Two Cities, that's one I've been putting off for some time now. At least Edwin Drood is relatively brief. I love him but he does make me mad sometimes...why use one word when you can use ten?!
