The Classics Spin #22

Time for a new spin!

At your blog, before Sunday, December 22, create a post to list your choice of any twenty books that remain “to be read” on your Classics Club list.

On Sunday 22nd December, 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 31st January, 2020.

Here are 20 titles I have selected from my 2nd list of 50 classics. 
I hope to get a Japanese title, as I already have a lot on my TBR for December and January (that’s also why I only have rather short books here), plus that would fit perfectly with the Japanese Literature Challenge.

1 Jun’ichiro Tanizaki A Cat, a Man, and Two Women (1936)
2 Xavier de Maistre Voyage Autour de Ma Chambre (1794)
3 A. A. Milne The Red House Mystery (1922)
4 Henry David Thoreau Civil Disobedience (1849)
5 Freeman Wills Crofts Inspector French’s Greatest Case (1924)
6 Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky The Letter Killers Club (1926)
7 Stefan Zweig Confusion (1927)
8 Edmond Rostand Cyrano de Bergerac (1897) = reread
9 Machado de Assi Dom Casmurro (1899)
10 Marcel Proust Days of Reading (1905)
11 Natsume Soseki Kusamakura (1906)
12 Kakuzo Okakura The Book of Tea (1906)
13 Natsume Soseki Sanshirō (1908)
14 Natsume Soseki The Miner (1908)
15 Robert Walser Jakob von Gunten (1909)
16 Natsume Soseki To the Spring Equinox and Beyond (1910)
17 Natsume Soseki The Gate (1910)
18 George Orwell Down and Out in Paris and London (1933)
19 Christopher Morley Parnassus on Wheels (1917)

  1. The only ones I’ve read on your list are #8 & #18, both of which I liked. But I always like it when someone gets spun something I haven’t read, so really that’s what I’m hoping!

  2. I read A Cat a Man and Two Women during the year, it’s a slow burn that has stayed with me.
    I didn’t now that Milne wrote stuff besides Pooh! Learn something new every day!

    Happy spinning 🙂
