      The Classics Club lets you pick your own list and the amount and the time frame for reading within certain parameters, it’s a really cool for people to be inspired to read classics. I’m just usually ridiculously ambitious for my reading ability, hence my inability to finish my lists thus far. For the spins, I’ve been putting on a lot of plays and less of the long ones.

      That is the story of me and a lot of novels. Or I’ll order them multiple time from the library and then read other books instead. Tom Hiddleston voices the main character in a bbc radio drama of Dracula, and that gave me more interest in it although it hasn’t caused me to read it yet.
