And the winner is...


A tie!

Charlotte's Web had been in the lead almost the whole time my Classics Club (sort-of) Spin poll was open, but The Borrowers slowly gained votes to tie things up in the end. I was ready to start a new book last night, so I closed the poll after two weeks and plucked Charlotte's Web off my shelf. Since there was a tie, I actually still had a bit of choice here, but I decided to go with the early favorite. Also, I think I'll want to continue with the rest of the Borrowers series, so I figured it would be better to go for the stand-alone title first.

Thank you to everyone who voted! I really appreciate your help and enthusiasm on this little project of mine. The fact that I've already read three chapters goes to show this works better for me than a traditional Classic Club Spin. I was a little surprised Wizard of Oz got zero votes, but that's OK, I still plan to get to it eventually (and that series has 14 books, so maybe it can bide a while longer!) I will definitely try this again in the future, but for now I'll be reading off this list in the order you guys voted :)

  2. I think Charlotte's Web was one my teacher read to us when I was little - it's a good one! I read Stuart Little on my own. I've been thinking it would be nice to read or re-read some of these MG classics.

  4. I remember loving The Borrowers as a kid, but I haven't reread it yet as an adult. I'm curious to hear what you think. Enjoy Charlotte's Web, too. It's a good one!

    1. Thanks Julie! The Borrowers has been a little bit slower to get into, but I am still enjoying it. Now to get my thoughts together for a post!
