Thoughts by Lewis Carroll, Aerie Books Ltd 1992 (orig (1871), 112 pages
Challenge: Litsy Book Spin! #DoubleSpin, actually
Genre/Theme: Children’s Book
Type/Source: paperback / used book store $1
What It’s About: A little girl has fantastical adventures with talking animals, size-alternating mushrooms, nonsensical tea parties, and games of croquet with moving parts and beheadings. Yikes!
Thoughts: I really wasn’t all that keen on reading this having attempted it once and for whatever reason just didn’t appeal. But that nagging thought that “I *REALLY* should read this” and maybe even a touch of FOMO had me put it on my second Classic Club 50.
It was better than I thought it would be.
Rating: Fours slices of pie.
” I passed by his garden, and marked, with one eye,
How the Owl and the Panther were sharing a pie”
Ok, so let’s talk Litsy: I’m doing all the things this October! (If you want to know the details of it, I can give you the person who hosts and how to find her explanation page. It’s difficult to find by searching for some odd reason.) The photo above shows my October Book Spin Bingo card. My next post will feature the other spin number that I’ve read. I read the DoubleSpin before the Spin Spin, by mistake.
Once I finish my current audiobook of Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison — I’ve got over 6 hours yet to go — I will have BINGO! and if I can get Ask Again, Yes! by Mary Beth Kean completed, I’ll have another BINGO! woot, woot!

You may not be interested in reading more of Alice’s adventures, but I will say that while I like Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland a lot, my true love is Through the Looking Glass. For whatever that’s worth!
I think it’s great you’re on your SECOND Classics Club list! Kudos to you.
