Classics Club Spin #15 (sort of): A Poll

If you're not familiar with The Classics Club's Spin events, basically you list 20 books from your list and then read whichever one corresponds to the randomly selected number for that round. I've attempted to participate in two previous rounds and both times, I never ended up reading my chosen book. I do want to pick up a classic as one of my next reads though, so I thought I'd do my own spin on the Spin!

Last summer I participated in a Make Me Read it Readathon and it really worked for me in terms of choosing my next book and actually sticking with it. So I thought I'd do a version of that by putting 6 of my Classics Club titles up for a vote here on the blog. With only 6 choices instead of 20, I can focus just on books I realistically want to read next. By leaving the final decision up to you guys, I think it retains a bit of the Spin's element of surprise. And best of all, I know hearing what book YOU are most excited about will provide an extra boost of motivation and encouragement. So, help a bookworm out? I'll keep the poll open for a week or two -- or until there have been at least a few votes and I'm ready to read :)

UPDATE: Voting is now closed! THANK YOU to everyone who voted :)

What children's classic should I read next?

Mrs. Piggle Wiggle
The Borrowers
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
Charlotte's Web
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Bedknob and Broomstick

  2. it was tempting to pick Charlotte's Web - a childhood favourite, but my sister had a copy of Bedknobs and Broomsticks which I always found fascinating.

    1. Thanks for voting! Well, Charlotte's Web is still in the lead at the moment, so we shall see what happens. I am thinking of reading more than one book from this list anyway, but the question is which to read first :)

  4. I have to pick just one?? But they're all good! (Actually, I didn't remember that Bedknob and Broomstick was a book and not just a movie. I'll have to check that one out!) But other than that, I love them all!

    I love this spin on the Classics club spin, too. This is a fun way to participate and make sure those classics get read!

    1. I know what you mean! It was hard narrowing down my choices even because I really do want to read all of them -- which bodes well for this challenge I think! Thanks for voting -- I think I will do this again in the future instead of the traditional spin :)

      Also of note, Bedknob and Broomstick is actually two books! The Magic Bed-Knob and Bonfires and Broomsticks -- who knew! It still looks like a nice short read even being two books.
