The Classics Club are spinning again.

I haven’t taken part in the last few spins because my library is closed due to COVID restrictions, which has limited my access to books on my list.

  1. Hope you get a good one, Rose 😊

  2. The Mill on the Floss is one of my favourite books of all time, I used to read chunks of it to my mother when I was a teen! Tender is the Night hey at the dreaded number 14!

    • I’ve never read The Mill on the Floss but know that it is a great favourite of many people. I’ve got some time off work coming up over summer so might try it then when I’ve got time to enjoy it properly.

  3. I’m arriving late so already know the number – Villette! Phew – I’m so glad you didn’t get landed with Tender is the Night!! I haven’t read Villette so am looking forward to your review. Hope you’re pleased with your pick!

  4. Villette is my favourite classic. I really hope you love it!

  5. Covid has limited many people from doing what they like!

    • True. My complaint about missing my library is a fairly trivial one considering what has happened in the world over the past 18 months. But I’ll be very happy when my lovely library is able to reopen!
