Classics Club Spin!

I'm in my last few months of the original Classics Club Challenge, and I have been slacking off BIG TIME.  I honestly want to throw away my original list and start anew, but I'm going to try and wait until March before I do that.  TRY, anyway... no promises.

So I'm going to try the latest Classics Club Spin, wherein we list 20 books still on our list.  On Monday, a number will be announced, and that is the book on the list I will try to read by August 1st.  I'm taking all of these titles from books already waiting on my TBR bookcase, because I also need to work on my #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks project too.  Let's see what happens with this, shall we??  Wish me luck!

  1. Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides
  2. Lysistrata by Aristophanes
  3. The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy
  4. In Our Time by Ernest Hemingway
  5. Snow by Orhan Pamuk
  6. The Black Dahlia by James Ellroy
  7. To Have and Have Not by Ernest Hemingway
  8. Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
  9. Les Liaisons Dangereuses by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos
  10. Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
  11. Persuasion by Jane Austen
  12. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
  13. Dracula by Bram Stoker
  14. The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro
  15. Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
  16. Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys
  17. Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller
  18. Junky by William S. Burroughs
  19. Dubliners by James Joyce
  20. Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo  
Edit:  The Number chosen is 15 - so looks like I'll be reading Gone With the Wind this summer!
