The Classics Club: Spin #30 – Results

Hello!

So the results of the latest spin are in and the number is 5. For my list for Spin #30 the post is here. Number 5 on my list is Scenes of Clerical Life by George Eliot.

A collection of three stories. The Stories take place in and around the fictional town of Milby in the English Midlands. Each of the Scenes concerns a different Anglican clergyman, but is not necessarily centred upon him. Eliot examines, among other things, the effects of religious reform and the tension between the Established and the Dissenting Churches on the clergymen and their congregations, and draws attention to various social issues, such as poverty, alcoholism, and domestic violence.

I haven’t read much George Eliot so I am looking forward to reading this book. Hopefully I can finish it by August 7th.

Now I have started reading classics again my TBR pile is growing as there are so many I want to read.

Please drop me a comment if you are doing the Classics Club challenge or if you have taken part in the Spin Challenge.

Happy Reading

The Classics Club: Spin #29 – Results

Hello!

Last week I decided to take part in the Classics Club Spin Event to decide my next read off my Classics Club List. The post can be found here.

Well the results are in and the chosen number was 11. This means my next read will be The New Magdalen by Wilkie Collins and I have to finish it by 30th April 2022.

I have only read one book by Wilkie Collins but I did love it so fingers crossed I will enjoy The New Magdalen just as much.

I am thoroughly enjoying my classics reading after so long without reading any.
