Classic Club Spin #7!

Unfortunately, I saw this notice of a new spin early this morning, so I am making a very late post about it. The last few I have participated in I was not able to finish the books. The  books marked with an * are from previous spins that I was unable to finish; because of time, couldn't get through it,etc. The challenge is to read whatever book from my numbered list that the Classic Club picks by October 6.

  2. Walden and Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau*
  3. Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell
  4. Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson
  5. The Republic by Plato
  6. Main Street by Sinclair Lewis
  7. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett 
  8. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
  9. The Magican's Nephew by C.S. Lewis
  10. The Railway Children by E. Nesbitt*
  11. Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
