    I also have Love in the Time of Cholera on my spin list, and I’ve seen a couple of others who do, as well. We also share Patricia Highsmith in common, although with different books.

    I hope you get a great spin pick. Good luck!

      I’ve read most of Garcia Marquez’s other books and loved most of them; he’s pretty awesome. And I noticed you had Strangers on a Train – I just ordered it off amazon last night, along with The Price of Salt :D. I’m looking forward to both of them.

    I LOVE Persuasion. Haven’t read anything else on your list, but one of my coworkers is obsessed with Watership Down. You’re list just reminds me of all the books I still need to read!

      Persuasion’s technically a reread, but it’s been ages since I read it. The only other one on my spin list I’ve read is Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (translation by Burton Raffel) which I can wholeheartedly recommend. I think seeing all the different books I need to get to is what I’m enjoying the most from the CBC–although my tbr list is ridiculous by now :P.

    The Tempest is wonderful and I’m so glad to see some poetry on a list. I really need to add some to mine. To The Lighthouse is a personal favourite, but I know that Woolf can take some getting used to.

    I hope that you get the book you’re wishing for! Happy spin!

      Thanks! I’ve really enjoyed some of Shakespeare’s other comedies, and I’m excited to read The Tempest. I’ve read A Room of One’s Own and The Waves and loved both of them, so I’m really looking forward to Woolf :D.

    Lovely to see the Trollope novels there. I’ve read The Warden and Barchester Towers and I love his perceptive writing. Good luck with your spin!
