Classics Club Spin / Bout of Books Wrap-Up
Today, the Classics Club spin number was announced as #6. This means that my challenge over the next month is to read Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier.
I do feel that the spin has been kind to me as Rebecca was on my 'books I am neutral about' list, rather than the 'books I am dreading' one. It's a relatively short book that I already own, so reading it should pose no problems. In fact, I have high hopes that I'm going to very much enjoy it, as regular readers will know that I'm a big fan of gothic fiction.
This week also marks the end of the Bout of Books readathon. My only main goal for the week was to read for at least an hour a day, which I accomplished. Although my enthusiasm for the read-a-thon started to wane a bit by the weekend, I'm thrilled that I managed to finish four books and get three quarters of the way through the fifth. I visited some great new blogs that I'm sure I'll keep up with and enjoyed giving myself the permission to spend some more time reading and blogging. The only downside is the backlog of reviews I now have to catch up on!
Did you take part in any of these events?
I'd love to hear which book you got on the classics club spin!
