The Classics Club
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.
