So, mine is an anthology of British poetry. I would also like to see if I can finish Richard III and Anna Karenina and at least pick up The Idiot again.
So, I started but didn’t finish Richard III for the last spin, and I’m about 1/3 of the way through Anna Karenina, and I still haven’t picked up The Idiot again, but hey, let’s do another Classics Club spin anyway. I am going to add those on there as well, maybe it will force me… Continue reading Classics Club Spin #30
I’m joining in the Classics Club spin #29, here. I’ve not done great on this list, and I’m reeaaaallly not doing great on reading period, so we’ll see. Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh Cymbelline Henry VI, Part 1 Henry VI, Part 2 Henry VI, Part 3 Henry VIII House… Continue reading My List for Classics Club Spin #29
Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis. Awesome, one I really didn’t want . . . I’m also going to see if I can read Cymbeline (my last spin pick), Dracula, The Moonstone, The Crucible and maybe Irish Faerie Tales and Turning of the Screw, since all these are very Autumnal and I’m quite behind on my… Continue reading My Classics Club Spin #12 is . . .
I’m going to attempt another spin. I had a play the last time which if I hadn’t essentially forgotten I could easily have read. I’ve put it on this list along with The Idiot and anything I felt was Autumnal feeling or at least not as Spring-y or Summer-y. An Anton Chekhov novel The Wimsey… Continue reading Classics Club Spin #28 List
Well, these spins have 2 out of 3 + success rate for me (I say over 2 out of 3 because I at least started The Idiot which I’ve again put on this list) which is pretty good. An Anton Chekhov novel A Good Man is Hard to Find or other Flannery O’Connor novel A… Continue reading Classics Club Spin #27 List
Prepare yourselves. I remember my sister telling me the synopsis on this story oh, a decade ago, so I knew the siblings died, I couldn’t remember anything much else, just vague things like there was a love interest. I didn’t have any connotation of the author then, and her name didn’t stick. Years later I… Continue reading The Mill on the Floss Review
My number 11 is Mill on the Floss. I’ve borrowed it multiple times and started to read it one of those times. I’ll have to see if I can get in on Kindle and start sooner than I did for all my other spins.
I’m joining in the Classics Club spin #26, I put The Idiot on again, maybe if it gets picked this time I will finish since I’m at least 1/3 through. A Thomas Hardy novel Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas Cymbelline Henry VI,… Continue reading Classics Club Spin
My General Reading Goals (present to March 20) Try to keep my books borrowed from the library to 12. Try to keep any other borrowed books to far fewer. Join an online book group, I’d like to join The Enchanted Book Club deluxe, maybe in March, depends on what they are reading. Work through important… Continue reading Winter Reading Plans 2021
So, this is very late. I’d definitely skimmed or read the story version of this play as well. I wrote my notes as remarks, so I’m going to have to pull my brief reviews from these somewhat cryptic responses. Ugh. There is a reason this one is not one of Shakespeare’s super popular plays. Coriolanus is… Continue reading Coriolanus: Play and Performance Review
I’m reading The Idiot by Dostoevsky for my Classics Club spin. I’m using this character list, someone took the Sparknotes version and took out the spoilers (why do these character lists have spoilers in the first place?!!!!). I printed it out, so I could have it handy. I’m reading on the Serial Reader app. I did… Continue reading The Idiot Part One
