18. Barchester Tower - Anthony Trollope
19. Cat's Cradle - Kurt Vonegut
20. The Customs of the Country - Edith Wharton

14 out of 20 are new authors for me. I'm a bit nervous, but also pretty exciting here. Have you read any of them? Spotted a favorite or two? :)


  1. Great list! Quite a few of my favorites on the list: Cather, Wharton, and I loooove Anthony Trollope! Lady Audley is a fun read, and Watership Down was a childhood favorite. Their Eyes Were Watching God is also wonderful though it took me a bit to get used to the dialog. Good luck with your spin pick!

  2. Congratulations on entering your 3rd (!) classics club list.

    Looks like lots of fun stuff to me on this list: I read The Crucible and Red Badge of Courage for high school and liked them both. My Antonia was great & I read The Custom of the Country for my classics club list.

    Happy spinning!

  3. I just saw Lady Audley's Secret on my bookshelf and got the urge to read it again. As Reese says, My Antonia was wonderful and Wharton is always good. Have a great spin!

  4. Great list of which I have read eight

  5. Exciting that you're so close to starting your third list--and if this sample is any indication it sounds like a good one!

    I'm not familiar with Eugene Onegin, but I hope you enjoy!
