And the Winner of the Classics Club Spin #18

It’s official. The lucky number is 9! And the book I’ll read for The Classics Club Spin #18 is Giovanni’s Room by James Baldwin. It’s not the number I had hoped for, but it is a book I’m excited to read and by an author I have enjoyed over the years.

So, now what? It’s simple just read and review the book (hopefully) by August 31st. That’s it. Can’t get any easier than that. Right?

  1. You have such a good list! I have read 7of the books you have listed, one of which I didn’t like but I’m not going to say to let you judge for yourself. I have not read Giovanni’s room so I can’t wait to hear what you think of it. Happy reading!
