The Classics Spin #29

Time for a new spin!

At your blog, before Sunday, March 20, create a post to list your choice of any twenty books that remain “to be read” on your Classics Club list.

On Sunday March 20, 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, 2022.

Here are 20 titles I have selected from my 3rd list of 50 classics.

  1. I have Jamaica Inn on my shelf and I am excited to read it. There are a number of books, like Jamaica Inn, that I want to read, but I am thinking of choosing some of them in the Fall, especially in October.

  2. Interesting list. I love Calvino but haven’t read your #1, I have read Robert Walser, again not this one. And A.A. Milne. Who hasn’t read “Winnie the Pooh”. Stefan Zweig, again read something else by him. And I read a Maigret story by Raymond Chandler. Daphne du Maurier’s books are still on my wish list. So, I will be looking forward to your reviews.

    Thanks for visiting my list.

  3. I had to come see what your number 16 is! I don’t know anything about it, either… but I might have to look it up based on the title. I love Arthurian legend. Number 20 is on my CC list and number six is waiting in my Kindle. Thanks for visiting me and good luck on the spin!

  4. I’ve read So Big, Jamaica Inn, and Fer-de-Lance (though it was a very long time ago). So Big is very good but I have a particular fondness for Chicago, where I lived for about 10 years. I’ve also loved most everything by Stefan Zweig but I haven’t read that one yet. Beware of Pity is on my list which I’ve had unread forever, so I really hope I get that one. Good luck with your spin pick!

  5. I love, love, love! The Baron in the Trees. Several other good ones on there. I’ll be curious if you get the Zweig: I like him but haven’t read that one.
