Huzzah, it's CC Spin #29!
Oh, I do love the Spin. This is the 29th Spin, and Brona and I have done them all. You probably know the drill: make a list of 20 books from the CC list, the random number will be dropped on Sunday, and you read the book before the deadline on April 30th.
So here's my list!
- Conjure Tales, by Charles Chesnutt
- The Box of Delights, by John Masefield
- Amerika, by Kafka
- First Love and Other Stories, by Turgenev
- Our Mutual Friend, by Charles Dickens
- The Gray Earth, by Galsan Tshinag
- It is Acceptable (Det Gaar An), C. J. L. Almqvist
- Revelations of Divine Love, by Julian of Norwich
- Motl, the Cantor's Son, by Sholem Aleichem
- The Female Quixote, by Charlotte Lennox
- House of Glass, by Pramoedya Ananta Toer
- Second-Class Citizen, by Buchi Emecheta
- The Leopard, by di Lampedusa
- The Black Arrow, by R. L. Stevenson
- I Served the King of England, by Bohumil Hrabal
- It Can't Happen Here, by Sinclair Lewis
- Hunger, by Knut Hamsun
- Madwoman on the Bridge, by Su Tong
- Thus Were Their Faces, by Silvina Ocampo
- The Hunchback of Notre Dame, by Victor Hugo
The scariest ones on here are Victor Hugo, who I have never read, and Our Mutual Friend.
Are you joining the Spin? I hope so! There are prizes galore. (The prize is you get to read a book!)
