My First Classic Club Spin

I am ashamed. Apart from having fallen very behind with my blogging and reading in general, I have never participated in a Classics Club Spin. I have intended to naturally, but never quite got round to it. This effort is particularly up to the wire – being as the number will be posted today, but I’m in time. Hurray!!

Here’s a link to the spin page if you’re curious: https://theclassicsclubblog.wordpress.com/ Later I shall find out what I’ve got. Fingers crossed it’s not an epic poem!
