Time for another Classics Club spin (happy face!)
If this is your first one, please click here to find out how to join in.
My previous spins have been successful and enjoyable:
#1 was The Magnificent Ambersons with Cat.
#2 was Tess of the D'Urbervilles with Lakeside Musings & Several Four Many.
#3 was My Cousin Rachel.
#4 was The Brothers Karamazov with Bree who also read a Dostoyevsky novel this spin. I'm still reading this chunkster...very slowly...and with lots of breaks. A good editor would have been helpful :-)
#5 was The Odyssey with Plethora of Books. This one was a little cheat as I had started it for another readlong, but struggled to finish. I added it to my list to motivate me to finish it. When no. 20 spun up it seemed like the gods had decreed it so!
On Monday 12th May, the Classics Club will announce which number we will read and review by the 7th July.
Regulars to my blog (and to the spins) will know that I like to match my spin books to fellow clubbers and their list of books, in the hope of sharing my reading experience with at least one other.

1. No Name reading with Melbourne on My Mind
2. Stoner reading with whatmeread
4. Slaughterhouse 5 reading with Howling Frog
5. A Tale of Two Cities reading with Kelly
6. Moll Flanders reading with Bookish Realm

Good luck and happy spinning!
Early Tuesday Morning Update (EST Australia)
I will be reading No Name by Wilkie Collins with Melbourne on My Mind.
I read and loved Moonstone and Woman in White many years ago, so I'm really looking forward to reading another Collins.
But first I must finish the books for Wharton Review month.
