Xmas Spin is here!!
SPIN Number 11 has been announced so I am going to try one more time.
We all know the rules. Make up a list of books you want to read - no more than 20 titles - and list them numbered from 1 to 20.
The deadline for posting a spin list is today since the spin number will be posted tomorrow!!! Once the number has been announced, we all have to read and review that number title.
The deadline for reading is by February 1st. which is 6-7 weeks away.
So far I have had NO luck with the last two spins I entered. The first spin I was able to swap out my title for another title by the same author so that was OK.
On the last spin I hated the book I ended up with. And I promise I DID try to read it. but who wants to read Middle English just for a challenge?? Certainly NOT me. So The Canterbury Tales was soon dumped from my list!!
Now I have to make up a new list and hope this time I get a book that I DO want to read!!!
Most of these have been on my previous lists. Some are new.
The Campfire Girls are an early form of Girl Scouts, but totally fictional. There were tons of Books written about them by various authors. You can read more here. Most of them are available on Project Gutenberg as well.
