The Classics Club
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.
