The Classics Spin #31

Time for a new spin!

At your blog, before Sunday, September 18, create a post to list your choice of any twenty books that remain “to be read” on your Classics Club list.

On Sunday September 19, 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 October 30, 2022.

Here are 20 titles I have selected from my brand new 4th list of 150 classics.
In this list of 20, I have included books on my physical book shelves (pink), 3 books I’d like to read for The 1929 Club, and the rest is mostly novellas I’d like to read for Novellas in November.

1 Edgar Allan Poe Major Tales (1849)
2 Rainer Maria Rilke Selected Poems (1899-1926)
3 Upton Sinclair The Jungle (1906)
4 James Joyce A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916)
5 Virginia Woolf Mrs. Dalloway (1925)
6 MIchel Tournier Vendredi (1969)
7 William Faulkner The Sound and the Fury (1929)
8 Anthony Berkeley The Piccadilly Murder (1929)
9 Ellery Queen The Roman Hat Mystery (1929)
10 George Eliot The Lifted Veil (1859)
11 Paul Gallico The Snow Goose (1941)
12 Nikolai Leskov Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk (1865)
13 John Buchan The 39 Steps (1915)
14 Italo Calvino The Cloven Viscount (1952)
15 Rudolph Fisher The Conjure-Man Dies: A Mystery Tale of Dark Harlem (1932)
16 Raymond Chandler The Big Sleep (1939)

  3. I see you got Rilke. I have never read anything by him, but should do. So up on my classic list it will go. I gott Willa Carter’s Death of an Archbishop. Wanted to read something by her a long time. I think it is short enough to manage this time.
