The Classics Club
The Classics Spin #24
Time for a new spin!
At your blog, before Sunday, August 9, create a post to list your choice of any twenty books that remain “to be read” on your Classics Club list.
On Sunday August 9, 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 September 30, 2020.
Here are 20 titles I have selected from my 2nd list of 50 classics.
This time, I didn’t include any Japanese classics, preferring to read them during the next Japanese Literature Challenge.
I didn’t have time to participate in the Spin #23, so I’m really excited, especially seeing the diversity I have.
