The Classics Club
The Classics Spin #25
Time for a new spin!
At your blog, before Sunday, November 22nd, create a post to list your choice of any twenty books that remain “to be read” on your Classics Club list.
On Sunday November 22nd, 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 January 30, 2020.
Here are 20 titles I have selected from my 3rd list of 50 classics (I basically just chose the 20th oldest).
I am including Japanese classics, as it will coincide with next Japanese Literature Challenge. (January-March)
I didn’t have time to read the boo I got for Spin #24, but I hope to do so soon.
