The Classics Club announced the Spin number Monday morning. The lucky number?
On my Spin list, that’s The City of God by Augustine of Hippo.
My first thought was, “Who made this list?”
But of course, it was me. I made the main list, and I made the Spin list. So, The City of God, it is!
I gave myself a bit of a break, though, and ordered an abridged version of the book, so I’ll only have ~600 pages of 5th-century religious writing to read rather than ~1,000 pages. Susan Wise Bauer (in her book, The Well-Educated Mind) said this was okay, and who am I to argue?
Onward into December, with St. Augustine and James Joyce by my side!
