Classics Club Spin #25

The Classics Club Spin number is 14 which means I’ll be reading The Acts of King Arthur and his Noble Knights by John Steinbeck. It’s a book that I’ve had in the house for quite a few years now unread, despite the fact that I pounced on it when I spotted it in a secondhand bookshop – only to leave it completely neglected on a shelf. Why do we do that?! I love the Classics Club spins as they really encourage me to read the books on my list.
