Classics Club Spin (28) It’s number 12

The Classics Club Spin has come up with number 12, for me that means that I’ll be reading End of the Chapter by John Galsworthy. It has to be read by the 12th of December which seems a very long way away at the moment, but no doubt it’ll arrive in a flash!

My copy of the book is an old one with small print which is probably why I haven’t got around to reading it before now. I’m looking forward to it though. I’ve just realised that it’s actually a trilogy comprising of Maid in Waiting, Flowering Wilderness and Over the River. It’s loosely linked with The Forsyte Saga which I loved.

If you joined in with the spin this month, what did you get and are you happy with it?

  1. I dread trying to read old (or new, for that matter) books with small print. Sometimes they get put off for quite a while.

    My book for the spin is The Moviegoer (1961) by Walker Percy. My first book by this author and I am looking forward to it.

      I’m exactly the same although I know that after I begin to read them it isn’t that long before I forget that the print is so small, I just somehow get used to it. Shamefully I’ve never even heard of Walker Percy, I hope you enjoy it.

  2. That should be enjoyable, if lengthy! I read quite a lot of Galsworthy in earlier days and have been meaning to revisit him for ages – maybe you’ll inspire me. Hope you enjoy it!

    • Bookertalk,
      The books feature some cousins of the Forsytes and also (I think) Fleur’s husband. It’s so long since I read the other books in the series that I can’t even remember his name!
