Classic Spin #5
The best thing about The Classics Club blog being based in the USA, is that it is still the 10th of February there.
Which means that it is still my birthday!
Happy Birthday Me!!
I've believed for sometime now that my birthday should not be constrained to just one day.
I've been claiming the closest weekend to my birthday as my special weekend for quite some time. In fact, I'm not far off claiming the entire month of February as mine!
So imagine my delight when The Classics Club choose my birthday as their next spin date! It has given me the perfect excuse to extend my day - the 10th - by nearly 24hrs thanks to the International Dateline!
And our lucky spin number on the 10th Feb is ...... 20!!
Which means the spin has been kind to me and my cheats methods of finishing chunksters.
I started the Odyssey last year with Allie's readalong at A Literary Odyssey, but I got stuck half way. I put it on this spin in the hope that it would encourage me to finish it :-)
I will be reading along with Plethora of Books who also had The Odyssey as book no. 20.
The aim is to finish it by the 2nd April and post my review on The Classics Club.
