19! (no clue what I’m talking about? Read this)
Which means I’ll be reading Wilkie Collins’ The Woman in White by May 31 and posting a review.
I’ll admit, I was kind of hoping to spin a shorter book. I don’t mind long novels (see: my Classics Club list), but I can’t start reading until I’m finished with the semester on May 10th. Also its one of the few books on the list I need to buy. Not that this latter is necessarily a problem….
(This is, by the way, the reason for my recent radio silence. I’m reading a lot of classics, but school has devoured all of my time. That will soon change!)
On the other hand, the shortened time limit may help me to sit down and actually finish the book in a timely manner. We’ll see.
Aside from the length, I’m excited to read The Woman in White. I read The Moonstone about six years ago and enjoyed it a lot. I also think The Woman in White will be a good classic to kick-start my summer reading, because although long, it’s a mystery that should be a page-turner (I hope!).
Did you participate in the spin? What are you reading? Or, if not, what’s the next classic you plan to pick up?
