The Classics Spin has revealed my next read from my Classics Club and it is. . . . #1. So here's what I'll be reading:
A Dance to the Music of Time (First Movement) by Anthony Powell. It's fairly long because it's the first three volumes of the twelve book series -- 718 pages! However, the print isn't too tiny and the margins are fairly large, so I don't think it will take me the entire two months! I'll be posting my review on December 1. I'm hoping to finish three or four of the last books on my Classics Club list by the end of the year, so this should help keep me on track.
Bloggers, did you sign up for the Classics Spin? What books did you get, and how do you feel about them?
I hope you enjoy Dance, despite the length. Maybe your review will encourage me to pick it up sooner... it's on my club list, too!ReplyDelete
I don't mind reading long books as long as they're good! I keep hearing great things about this series so I'm looking forward to it. I hope I can inspire you to read it as well.Delete
I've never heard of this one. It's always so nice to be introduced to "new" books from other bloggers!ReplyDelete
My spin choice is We by Yevgeny Zamyatin and I'm excited to start it.
I am tempted to sign up for the spin...I just love making lists.ReplyDelete
I hope you like the First Movement. I really loved this entire series..once I got the momentum to read them, I could not stop.
I have never heard of this book--off to research.ReplyDelete
Hope you enjoy it.
I love the Dance: read it twice, and while the second time was for a class, it was just as enjoyable. It can take a little time to get into the first book, whose early chapters are all about school boys, but the characters are so distinctive and memorable that you'll be swept along. I do hope you love it as much as I did.ReplyDelete
