The Classics Club Spin #16 – Short and Sweet

The Classics Club announced the Spin number yesterday:


Which means I’ll be reading The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.  While it wasn’t the book I really wanted, it will be a quick, easy read and that’s probably a good thing right now.  I’m in the middle of reading The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien and it is definitely not light reading.
