The Classics Spin #17

Time for a new spin!

At your blog, before next Friday, March 9, create a post to list your choice of any twenty books that remain “to be read” on your Classics Club list.

This is your Spin List. You have to read one of these twenty books by the end of the year. Try to challenge yourself. For example, you could list five Classics Club books you are dreading/hesitant to read, five you can’t WAIT to read, five you are neutral about, and five free choice (favorite author, re-reads, ancients — whatever you choose.)

On Friday, we’ll post a number from 1 through 20. The challenge is to read whatever book falls under that number on your Spin List, by April 30. We’ll check in here in May to see who made it the whole way and finished their spin book!

So here are my 20 books:

  1. Whose Body? by Dorothy L. Sayers
  2. The Moonstone, by Wilkie Collins
  3. The Face of Another, by Kobo Abe
  4. The Baron in the Trees, by Italo Calvino
  5. Solaris, by Stanislas Lem
  6. Childhood’s End, by Arthur C. Clarke
  7. Fantômas, by Marcel Allain
  8. A Streetcar Named Desire, by Tennessee Williams
  9. The Sound and the Fury, by William Faulkner
  10. Tender is the Night, by F. Scott Fitzgerald
  11. Travels With Charley, by John Steinbeck
  12. A Moveable Feast, by Ernest Hemingway
  13. To the Lighthouse, by Virginia Woolf
  14. Oblomov, by Ivan Goncharov
  15. Confusion, by Stefan Zweig
  16. Gaspard, Melchior & Balthazar, by Michel Tournier
  17. We, by Yevgeny Zamyatin
  18. Kusamakura, by Natsume Soseki
  19. The Dream  of the Red Chamber, by Cao Xueqin
  20. Confusion, by Stefan Zweig

  1. I looooooove Tennessee Williams, and Streetcar is one of his best. Tender is the Night was one of my first favorites, a really emotional read for me. And I can’t say enough about WOOLF. Oh, my heart! I haven’t read The Moonstone, yet, but I really do need to get to it — I loved The Woman in White.
