Last week I decided to take part in the Classics Spin. The idea of the Spin was to list twenty books from my Classics Club list, number them 1 to 20, and the number announced today (Monday) represents the book I have to read before 2nd May 2016.
The number that has been selected by the Classics Club this time is #8, which means the book I’ll be reading is:
Kristin Lavransdatter by Sigrid Undset
I have to admit, this is not one of the books I was hoping for – although I’m still quite happy with this result. I do think I’ll enjoy it, but having just finished Vanity Fair today I would really have liked something shorter and lighter. This is the longest book left on my Classics Club list so trying to read it by the May deadline might be too ambitious, but I should at least have time for the first volume, The Wreath.
Have you read Kristin Lavransdatter? What did you think? And if you took part in the spin too, what will you be reading?
