What is the spin ?
This is a challenge by The Classics Club. It states : "At your blog, before next Sunday 18th April, 2021, create a post that lists twenty books of your choice that remain “to be read” on your Classics Club list. This is your Spin List. You have to read one of these twenty books by the end of the spin period.
On Sunday 18th, April, we’ll post a number from 1 through 20. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on your Spin List by the 31st May, 2021. We’ll check in here on Monday the 31st May, 2021 to see who made it the whole way and finished their spin book !"
