The Classics Club: The Classics Spin #1

This Monday, The Classics Club came up with a new idea. They suggested playing a kind of reading game, in which we select and list twenty books from our Classics Club list that we haven't read yet. Next Monday they'll announce a number from 1 to 20 and we have to read the book that falls under that number by April 1. Isn't that a great idea? It will be so much fun! Although I am afraid that they'll pick a number under which there's a dreaded book! But, I'm living dangerously...
