Classics Club Spin #23 – the result

The spin number was chosen today and its number 6 which means that I will read Angela Thirkell’s Summer Half and blog about it by the 1st of June.

Summer Half is a re-read for me, but I’ve been reading Angela Thirkell’s books in order again as the first time I read them it was just in a random order as and when I could get copies of the books.

Strictly speaking I don’t really think of her books as ‘classics’ although as they are still in print decades after they were first written I suppose it’s fair enough to categorise them as classics. I know it will be a light and amusing read which will be perfect for these Covid-19 times that we’re having to endure, and no doubt we’ll still be in a similar situation by the 1st of June.

I did want to get number 3 which is The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov, maybe I’ll just read that one soon anyway. Are you up for that too tracybham?

  1. I love Angela Thirkell and I hope your post will inspire me to read more of her books, I still have about 20 unread!

    I also want to read The Master and Margarita, so I’d read along if you want more people to participate.

  2. Katrina, yes, I would love to read The Master and Margarita when you do. Let me know when you plan to start.

    I have never read Angela Thirkell. I might like to try her books but right now I hate to add a new author.

    • tracybham,

      I’m happy to start reading The Master and M whenever suits you best.
      Thirkell’s books aren’t everybody’s cup of tea although I think they’re good comfort reads.
